This group of Red-Billed Oxpeckers is disbanding to find another tick infested hide. Oxpeckers do large herbivores a huge service by keeping their coats and hides free of pestilence. Oxpeckers are relentless in their quest for parasites and sometimes become a pest themselves by getting a little too personal. This generally results in a vigorous shake of the head or swat of the tail.
Bull Kudus in my opinion are one of the most elegant of all the African antelopes. Mostly browse eaters, Kudus are generally found under some sort of tree cover. This lovely bull was in Moremi Wildlife Refuge of Botswana.
