Camera: Nikon D6

Lens: Nikon VR 400 mm f/2.8 G

Aperture: f/4.5

Shutter speed: 1/3200

ISO: 400

Description: Small and big, bird and buffalo, red and black...more than enough contrast between these two animals, and yet they unmistakably belong together.

Story from behind the lens: The image of a buffalo and an oxpicker was one of the pictures I wanted to take on my first Africa safari. James, my guide, knew exactly where to go to take this statue. And luckily he was incredibly patient with me, it took almost half a day before I was satisfied with this image.
