Mother and baby Gerenuk – Samburu National Park, Kenya. The Gerenuk is a small, delicate antelope which lives in the remote desert areas of Northern Kenya and Southern Ethiopia. The elongated neck allows it to browse higher up than other antelopes its size. Gerenuks can often be seen feeding erect – standing on their hind legs.

    Oh, man, this is really beautiful. LOVE the antelopes’ isolation against such a great b/g. You know this is going into my Faves.
