Welcome to JELLEN IN THE BLACK HILLS ~ My digital journal, where I highlight the natural wonders around me ~ the birds, beasts, botany, and beauty ~ in a National forest in SW South Dakota ~ and sometimes beyond.

At a distance, in the midst of a large, grassy green field in Custer Park on Tues., I saw a small brown cluster. At first I wasn't sure if it was a rock but the rock moved. I took photos...got home and cropped the "things" and discovered it was two young prong-horn antelope calves! (I had to look up what antelope babes are called. I never would've guessed they're calves!) I've never seen them before. Where was ma?!
Almost as rare a sight, for me, at Custer Park is a white-tail buck. This guy let me take a few photos from a safe distance..one of the nearby does freaked out, spooking the other deer around her.
