Hi Terry, Well Caught.
The Oxpecker certainly has a great view of the lay of the land from there. Nice shot.
Interesting shot, though I admit to being squeamish about the thought of a bird digging ticks out of living flesh of the giraffe (or other animals)
Fun to see the bird on the giraffe's neck. You notice you didn't need to put the whole animal in the shot for us to know who was being "pecked on".
