I love Rungius' depictions of wildlife. I had never seen pronghorn before living out here and I'm not sure where else they are outside the eruption zone, but this is a nice colorful painting to remember them by.

|Rungius found Wyoming to be a great country for wildlife when he first visited the state in 1895. He began painting antelope and said "When I saw a bunch out of range I attracted their attention by rising a number of times and disappearing again. Antelope have a great bump of curiosity and anything unusual fascinated them."|
