Autumn Pronghorns at Flaming Gorge Reservoir – Nikon D300, f5.6, 1/800, ISO 640, Nikkor 200-400mm VR at 300mm, natural, light
The first of September means the start of Autumn to me. It means the oaks in the high country have already begun to turn red. I have already seen that this week.
It means animals like bison, pronghorn and elk will soon be in rut. I heard elk bugling already this week.
It means the days are getting shorter, that mornings will get cooler and birds will be on the move. Migration is already happening but I know in September it picks up.
I enjoy the changing seasons…
Life is good.
These pronghorn does were photographed in September of 2011 in front of the Flaming Gorge Reservoir at Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area, Antelope Flat, Daggett County, Utah. Our public lands belong in public hands, today and always.
