There have been four male pronghorn antelope that like to hangout near the Blacktail Plateau in Yellowstone National Park for some years now. One evening, after photographing badgers, two of the males stopped their walkabout to have a tender moment. I wasn’t in the best location (hence being able to see a blurred car in the background) and it happened so quickly, I was forced to crop the shot, given my composition was less than ideal. But the image still holds up as one of those magical moments that only still photography can freeze and allow you to replay time and again.
