Thanks all for your comments.

Yes, the prevailing concern in comments was lack of close up, and frankly, that was my initial problem to. I actually tried to rely on cropping the HDV as I took it to SD to get a bit of closer look, and some of scenes show that stress, including emphasis on the aberations of my less than perfect telextender.

Ultimately, I knew I should be closer to the animals, but I just wasn't able get closer to the animals because they were on private lands. I had to shoot from the roadways. Even had one rancher drive up and demand to know what I was doing, after he spied me shooting a soaring redtail hawk over his property.

I did consider combining this footage with other wild life footage I had shot in the area, like local birds, hawks, a bald eagle in flight, and a herd of deer, but settled on a single subject instead. After completing edit, and running short on time, I determined that might have been a better idea.... but then that is how you learn. Next time...

Thanks again to all for viewing and for the constructive criticism....

The antelope is a great animal of the plains and high desert. I know how hard it can be to actually get close enough to film like you would like at the best of times.
I appreciate what you tried to accomplish.

what tele externder did you use??? On which hd camera??

thanks for sharing
