YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK (Part Five) Pronghorns and Predators

In a place where a natural balance occurs between predators and prey, there is often life and death drama that humans don't witness regularly.

The buck pronghorn is defending his fawn from a hunting coyote.  Luckily the coyote is hunting alone.  Each move that the coyote makes to get close to the unseen fawn is countered by the buck...





















Finally this coyote grew frustrated and decided to seek easier prey.  This morning we saw a mother nursing her fawn in the sagebrush...



Pronghorn fawns are full of energy and their parents have to keep a close eye on them to prevent them from running into trouble...











Thanks for visiting, be well, and come back soon.
