My name is Deborah Zajac. I'm a photographer living in Nevada at the base of the Eastern Sierras. I am a passionate nature, landscape, night/astro photographer. I shoot predominately in color and use Nikon Digital Cameras, and lenses. I hope you enjoy seeing some of the photos I've taken while on my travels.

  1. Oh, am envious you get to see all these wild animals! Beautiful landscape! Are you still doing watercolor (I hope so:) ? To paint these, would be a great subject! Have a great weekend!

  2. Wow, Deborah, Flashback about the Pronghorn Antelope. We saw them many years ago on a Canyon’s visit. Nice composition on the photo. It is almost as if they posed for you.🙂 Beautiful!

    1. I think of “fork” when I hear prong. I’ll have to see what that site’s note means. Were they introduced then and not really native? I thought they were from reading something years ago when I first looked them up after seeing them for the first time. I’ll have to look again.

      1. It’s an etymology site, so it meant that the term “prong-horned antelope” has been found in writing as far back as 1815. The animals themselves had been there for millennia and are therefore native, but only when English speakers began to encounter them as they explored the west did they need an English name.

  3. Oh, yeah, but I have to say it makes me smile because it reminds me of a photo of wild animals from Africa and with the horses in the background, the antelope look a bit odd at first glance.
