Male Pronghorns have distinctive black horns that, when viewed from the front, sometimes form a heart shape. This curve of this buck’s horns isn’t quite heart-shaped but his horns are quite distinctive. Photographed just inside Yellowstone National Park near Gardiner, MT. Nikon D5, 500mm PF.
It was cold as the sun rose over the Gallatin Range. We stood overlooking the Yellowstone River off Highway 89 on the way to the North Entrance of Yellowstone National Park and watched the brilliant reds color the clouds.
