Description

This was a new species for me: the pronghorn "antelope". It is not, of course, an antelope. It is, on the other hand, the fastest damn land animal in the western hemisphere. Thunderous grace of lightning speed. Granted, all the pronghorn I saw via Interstate 90 on this day were lolling about, taking their sweet time in the July heat.
