Little spikehorn on the run.
These photos were possible solely by luck.
I just happened to have the camera on the setting that allows me to take multiple shots per second, and I just came across a dopey little spikehorn that thought the best way to run away from me was to run at me.
So I was able to get the full sequence of him bounding about.
Unlike mule deer, white-tailed deer don’t stot. Stotting is a behavior that communicates to predators that a deer is healthy, but because white-tails evolved in the forest, they really can’t communicate anything to predators as they run off.
So they have these bounding gazelle leaps that do help them clear a lot of country in a very short time.
