    Wildebeest close-up portrait    
    wildebeest gnu closeup head portrait  
Wildebeest, Kruger NP

As part of my "shoot more common subjects" project, I was determined to get a good shot of this wildebeest. The light was good, the subject was in front of me and I was determined to work with what I had, instead of running around and look for a more exotic subject.

But the tall grass made full-size portraits hard, and besides, wildebeest rarely make good action subjects (unless there is a predator hanging on to them).

So I decided to get a close-up of the head, showing the horns, the beady eyes and the dark snout.
