Ft. Worth Zoo - Gerenuk

Back to the zoo today. You can get some really interesting photographs at a zoo, and the Fort Worth Zoo gives you unobstructed views of many of the animals. I do wish the fence had not been behind her, though.

This is a female Gerenuk. The moment I saw her I thought she deserved a starring role in at least one of the Star Wars movies. Gerenuk means giraffe necked, and for an antelope, she fits that bill.

fun to go to the zoo and see the animals. Wonderful captures!

Especially at a zoo that tries so hard to make the habitats seem so natural, and spacious.

I can't believe I've been to DFW countless times, and yet have never been to the zoo. Thank you for such spectacular captures of it!
