We were driving north of CO Springs last March, and watched a herd of antelope cross the highway at 40 mph+. The little does squirted under the fence but the buck nailed it, bounced back and shot across the highway the other direction, picking up speed as he went. He repeated this performance again, each time losing enough fur to stuff a pillow. Finally he crossed again and got under, losing another big patch of fur off his rump as he flew under the fence, where he rejoined the herd.

Sure was a show!
“Nine-tenths of tactics are certain, and taught in books: but the irrational tenth is like the kingfisher flashing across the pool, and that is the test of generals. It can only be ensured by instinct, sharpened by thought practicing the stroke so often that at the crisis it is as natural as a reflex.” ~ T. E. Lawrence
