These birds like to have their accommodations along with a limo driver it seems. They can take a rest and let the driving to Mr Ox! An extremely usual aviary creature this bird. And a fine note to accompany. Have a fine New Year...take care..

Great image of this beautiful, but unfortunate bird. Unfortunate because it must be awful going through life being called a red-bellied oxpecker. Your image is immpeciable as always, thanks and Happy New Year Annick.

"Just hanging around",love the textures in this shot.
The POV is excellent and you have cropped it well.
Lovely vivid colours and spot on focus.The stance of the impala and the pose of the oxpecker give this a nice relaxed feel to it.
Best wishes and Happy Hunting in 2008!

Thank you for your wishes.
As the lovely oxpecker, is watching into the blurred background, upon an unstable back, we are watching towards the unclear new year. I hope it will be a year of healthy, fortunate and realization of all the wishes.
