Antelope Calves

Posted in Nature, Photography by leahyetter on June 24, 2012

I spotted this cutie yesterday evening when I got home after a busy day in town.

Deer fawns aren’t the only young ones bucking happily through the meadows. Baby antelope are running around here in two’s (the cow usually has twins). This calf was getting ready to stand up because it saw it’s mom and sibling across the road but froze when I pulled up.

The doe has a gash in her front right leg. She seems to be taking good care of her babies but she’s got to be hurting. She could have gotten caught on a fence, gotten kicked, who knows how this happened. But it looks like she’ll heal up and be back to normal soon. They let me get a few shots before taking off.

Have a relaxing Sunday my friends and stay cool. It’s hot out there!

      Well thanks for viewing! Glad you like the young ones. I’m hoping to see baby turkeys soon. We haven’t seen any broods yet and we’re a little nervous. Hopefully they are still in protective custody and the hens will bring them out safely…and soon! 🙂

    There’s a stark beauty in these wildlife shots you take, Leah, and a serenity that I feel whenever I take a look. I love your photos. Thank you for taking the time to share these moments of your life with us.

    They are so cute with their little alien faces – I’m hoping that mama heals well, but we all know that life in the wild is a delicate system of give and take.

    What a face. The doe’s muzzle (is that right?) is beautiful.
