[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These two Pronghorn Antelope were fighting over a small herd of females near Medicine Hat. The fight lasted about 4 minutes and then the victor chased the loser over 1.5 kilometers away from the herd. This shot was taken from a truck and has been cropped.

Hi Rick,
The forces of nature at work here...;-)
Great action shot!
Well done!
Dave

Hello Rick,
exciting scene, well captured frozen in motion with dramatic pose. I like the naturalistic subdued colours, and there are good details. Certainly some precision has been lost due to downsize to the web. A little bit of postwork sharpening selectively on the antelopes might do this nicely done documentary image a favour.
Thank you! Best regards and Merry Christmas!
Peter

Look like steer wrestling at the Stampede! The buck on the right is going down!

Ride 'em Pronghorn!
