      She wasn't far away. This was taken in a campground. The owners told me she has her baby there every year.

      Hard to believe they grow up to be one of the fastes mammals on earth! This is so sweet. I notice it has the same colour as a lot of our bay antelope also have at birth and for the first few weeks.

      Pronghorn mothers leave their babies in the grass and wander away from them. Predators such as coyotes and eagles can not see their fawns but can still see the adults. Pronghorns use their speed to out run predators, but the young are not fast enough until two weeks of age. So it is best for the mothers to leave the young hidden in the grass and return every few hours to check on them.
