Male Gerenuk in Samburu.JPG

 

Male Gerenuk in Samburu

 
Photographed at 8:25 am on 29 April, 2014 in Samburu National Reserve, Kenya, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II super-telephoto lens.
 
ISO 200, 1/500 sec., f/5, 400mm focal length, handheld Manual exposure.
 
*****************************************************************************************************
 
The massive bulk of male gerenuk horns is shown in this image. They have a fairly diminutive reinforced skull which supports powerful horns with slightly curved tips.
 
We spotted this gerenuk in the raised land away from the Ewaso Nyiro River. It was feeding alone, showing no apparent discomfiture upon our arrival. Visitors are commonplace in its world.

Great portrait Tom, reflective and wary yet not about to stop going about the business of feeding!

Male Gerenuk in Profile

 

~ Photographed on 28 January, 2015 at 10:53 am in Samburu National Reserve, Kenya with an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II super-telephoto lens.

 

ISO 500, f/5.6, 1/1600 sec., 400mm focal length, handheld Manual exposure.

 

*********************************************************************************************************

 

While gerenuks do occasionally rigidly stand motionless, seldom are they in such clear profile relative to the camera lens as this male was. He was with a small herd of females near the Ewaso Nyiro River.

 

It must have been a challenge for the herd to obtain adequate water, given the river's low level. His nobility of appearance impressed me, remaining vigilant for the herd.

 

Gerenuk exert an appeal on my attention, perhaps because the geometry of their form includes complex curves. I hope all Safaritalk members and visitors may eventually see gerenuk!

An unusual point of view, this  gerenuk was lying down after  a sand storm .

*****************************************************************************************************
 
This was the first gerenuk that I ever saw. I was so poorly informed, that I didn't know what it was, much less its name. Patient Anthony quickly straightened me out.
 
The musculature of the rear legs was self-evidently greater than the front, hence the possibility of browsing while standing on two legs. Such a magnificent species!

Male Gerenuk in Samburu National Reserve

 
Photographed at 4:38 pm on 1 October, 2014 in Samburu National Reserve, Kenya, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II super-telephoto lens.

*****************************************************************************************************
 
We'd entered Samburu National Reserve in late afternoon, enjoying a close sighting of several elephants. It was a great surprise when this male gerenuk walked towards us and began feeding.
 
Neither Anthony nor I said anything, letting the light breeze be the only sound. The gerenuk was nibbling on the bush next to us, such that it was necessary to lean back within the safari van in order to focus.
