Default Pronghorn Antelope

It's not easy to capture good shots of pronghorn antelope without a telescope, but these few seemed to be more mellow than most on the high plains of South Park, CO (yes, THAT South Park), near Eleven Mile Reservoir and Park, at sunset. All taken with Canon 7D and EF 70-200mm F4 IS lens.

Don't you mean "South Fork"? Even Cartman knows that South Park is make believe. By the way do you know that Eric Cartman is a takeoff on Eric Hartmann, the leading German ace in WW2?

No, it really is South Park--check your Colorado geography. We have a South, Middle, and North Park. The town in the series South Park is actually modeled after two of the towns in South Park, Fairplay and Alma. I didn't know that Cartman's name stems from Hartmann, but as a graduate of a small, highly selective nationally-supported college at the foothills of the Rockies (far superior to the similar trade schools on the banks of a river and a famous bay), I am well aware of Hartmann's history.
