curious gerenuk standing erect on its hind legs in the wild meru national park, kenya

I was after this iconic shot of a gerenuk standing on it's hind legs during my trip to Meru National Park, Kenya, and I was not dissapointed! I waited patiently, as it hang around these bushes and then out of nowhere it lept up and I snapped away. The fact that it look straight at the lense made this moment all the more special!
