Crowned with soaring antlers and grassland flora, a pronghorn antelope struts proudly among the guests at the Wild Hat celebration. Buckwheat, grama grass, and devil’s claws are secured to his antlers with needle & thread grass. A vermilion flycatcher re-positions a hesperaloe pod. Straddling the antelope’s neck like a little jockey is a ground squirrel, clutching a string of tahoka daisies, scarlet gilia, and grama grass. A bell-like yucca blossom dangles from the center. A lord of the plains, his majesty is undeniable!
