Wow! I can see how you could have missed the baby. Any idea how far away they really were? John
I am awful with distances. I can say I only JUST saw the mother from my suv before I stopped and could earily hold out my pinky at arms length to fully cover her. And Antelope are a bit skiddish and she did not even care I was way out there, so I assume far.
2 missed oppertunities Antelope standing off the shoulder facing a barbwire fence. He was just standing there staring right at the fence. ANtelope do not like to jump, so where a deer would have simply floated over the short fence, this Antelope was trying to will it away. Anyway, since they are so skiddish and I saw him when just about on him, I decided to not stop and try to take a picture since he may have been spooked and rather than jump over would have ran INTO the road.
About a mile further along, a Fox ran across the road. Too fast to stop, open the case, remove the camera, turn it on, and try to get the image, he/she was way off the road before I could react. Still, love seeing the animals.
I have wanted to get a picture of hawks, buzzards and eagles, but with the drought and heat, they are hard to find, actually I have not seen a one! No birds, unless playing in a sprinkler at a farm. :/ I suspect birds know enough than to fly around in the high heat and lack of water. :)
