Pronghorn

The hills of Custer SP in South Dakota are filled with some of the most carefree wildlife you'll see. They have no real natural fear of humans, coming up to cars or hikers with relative impunity. It gives a fantastic chance to witness (and photograph) these marvelous animals that you'd have to track in other areas.

 

This is a pronghorn, Antilocapra americana, nibbling on the field grasses in the late afternoon.
