Description: Oxpecker looking for a snack in a male buffalo's nose

Story from behind the lens: We were headed to the Talek river hoping to find some good action to photograph. It was a hot dusty day. As we drove through an open patch we seemed to startle this lone buffalo with our sudden appearance. We got close and saw some oxpeckers feeding on ticks and insects on his back and face. we stopped right in front of him and locked eyes. At that moment this bird dropped from the eyes to the nostrils of the buffalo and put its head in the buffalo's nose. That's when I got this shot.
