    Today's Portland, Oregon Zoo visit produced a couple of really nice captures of the zoo's Gerenuk, a species of antelope also known as Waller's Gazelle. Their graceful long necks & legs allow them to stand on their hind legs to reach leaves. I had my Fuji X-E1 with 55-200mm F/3.5-4.8 lens aboard.

    Wow, that is a crazy looking adaption! I don't think I've ever seen a Waller's Gazelle before, very interesting.
