[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A strange moment captured during a safari around Murchison Falls in Uganda...

I didn't research it but I'm sure these two have some type of mutual benefit one from another. Nature works in mysterious ways.

What an unusual shot. I'm sure you're right, they both must benefit, and my first thought is that the bird might eat the ticks, fleas, and other parasites that torment this beast? That said, it is an unusual shot, but I like it. I also like the details in this beat's face. The bird is soft, but it still captures the overall uniqueness.

Hello Oren,
A warm welcome to TN.
Wow, what a great shot of those two.
They seem very comfortable with each other,
so it is possible that they do have some kind of symbiotic relationship.
The image has very sharp details and well saturated colors.
The subjects are well isolated against the grassy BG.
A very interesting shot.
Thank you for sharing.
