I was photographing a number of Zebra and Giraffe in Africa when I noticed that many of them had Oxpeckers on them feeding off of the various insects on their bodies. I began including the birds in my images when I noticed these four lined up perfectly along a giraffe’s back. I only had time for one shot before the birds rearranged themselves and broke the pattern.
