Photo Of The Day By Robert Henderson

Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Yellow-Billed Oxpecker Conference” by Robert Henderson. Location: Serengeti National Park, Tanzania.

“The two juvenile yellow-billed oxpeckers are looking for a handout, but to no avail,” explains Henderson. “They’re going to have to find their own tasty ticks for dinner. Everyone who visits East Africa has pictures of these ubiquitous birds on their favorite animals, but I really like the way the stripes of the zebra swirl and focus attention on the birds.”

Canon EOS 7D Mark II, Canon EF 100-400mm f/ 4.5-5.6 IS II USM lens at 560mm, Canon 1.4X III teleconverter. Exposure: 1/1000 sec., f/8, ISO 800.
