Herbivores and oxpeckers are not often seen apart. Generally associated with buffalo, rhino and hippo, these yellow billed oxpeckers (Buphagus africanus) take a momentary break from their constant search for insects and parasites while hitching a ride on a Cape buffalo (Syncerus caffer).

Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe

Although Canadian by birth, I grew up in Africa and from an early age travel became a regular part of my life. As a result I developed an early passion for my two great loves, Africa and aviation. Being fortunate to return to Africa every year with our own safari company “Explorations Africa”, all of my photos of wildlife are taken in their natural and unstaged settings.
