Photographer's Note

African Buffalo & Red-billed Oxpeckers

Kruger National Park – South Africa


These birds be the best and the worst friend of a buffalo at the same time.. However they eat skin parasites (like ticks and fleas) they also peck at the buffalo’s wounds to keep them open to more parasites.
