Description: A trio of ox-peckers add an angelic touch to the unparalleled grace of giraffe in the breeze

Story from behind the lens: We had spent a good deal of time with a small journey of giraffe, made notable by the antics of this youngster, who was keenly exploring its surrounds at a reasonable distance from its mother. Our guide Jackson, told me to be prepared for when the calf would return to the mother, as that usually results in something memorable to photograph. The calf returned but what transpired was beyond what we expected, with the ox-peckers seeming to us like angels singing Hallelujah!
