Oxpecker and Zebra, South Africa

This Month in Photo of the Day: Travel and Adventure Photos

I took this picture on a gray and rainy day in Kruger National Park, South Africa, in 2008. I was taking pictures of the oxpecker sitting on the zebra, but the oxpecker flew down on the ground instead, making it a better picture.
