A smartass bird
Red-billed oxpecker perching on African Buffalo. This bird plucks hair from livestock to make a nest, it also helps cattle by eating ticks. Lovely symbiotic relationships, isn’t it?

Sitting in the rain and watching the world go by
Beautiful horns. You wouldn’t wanna mess up with this moody animal, would you?
One tickbird on the back, another one perching on the tummy. Hitching a free ride, pecking at rotting wound tissue, plucking parasites off the skin.
Heaven for this yellow-billed oxpecker, sitting on the tick-infested Cape Buffalo
