Miniature Pronghorn on Fence

No. No. No.  That is NOT what this is.  But an astute Instagram follower right away saw this.  How did I manage to get the pronghorn on the fence?

It was supposed to be a post about how pronghorns cannot jump over fences.  They crawl under, often injuring themselves.  Enlightened ranchers add a length of PVC to the lower strand of wire every once in a while allowing the animals to get under without injury.  The rancher watches for the places where the pronghorn usually cross, and puts the PVC there.  Nice.

Kangaroo Alert

Mind you, this sign is in the Gila National Forest in the southwest USA.  I think you could be looking for kangaroos for the next 500 miles without finding them.

Jupiter Moon

Watching the sun rise through layers of smoke made it resemble Jupiter.  I imagined we were a distant moon of Jupiter.  Or maybe a sister planet.  What would it be like to live on one of a double planet?
