Cape Buffalo with Oxpecker

I was photographing a breeding herd of Cape buffalo when I quickly became fascinated with the active Yellow-billed Oxpecker flying on and around all the Buffalo. The challenge began to capture one in focus as it came in for a landing. The Yellow-billed Oxpecker is native to Africa and will perch on Cape buffalo as well as other mammals to eat the ticks and other parasites found on the animals.
