Pronghorn Antelope in Lamar Valley

One of the most common challenges for me in taking pictures of wildlife is finding compositions where the subject animal can easily be distinguished from the background. This is especially difficult when the colors and form of the subject serve as a natural form of camouflage. After watching this pronghorn for 15 to 20 minutes I was lucky enough to have him move to the top of the ridge and isolate himself from the brown grassy hill side and mountain range in the background.

This image wasw taken in the Lamar Valley, my favorite area in Yellowstone National Park.

Thanks for visiting, hope you enjoyed. – john
