Yellow Billed Oxpecker Zebra

The two juvenile Yellow Billed Oxpeckers are looking for a handout, but to no avail. They are going to have to find their own tasty ticks for dinner. Everyone who visits East Africa has pictures of these ubiquitous birds on their favorite animals, but I really like the way the stripes of the zebra swirl and focus attention on the birds. I took the image in the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, with a Canon EOS 7D Mark II with a Canon EF 100-400 mm f/ 4.5-5.6 IS II USM lens with a Canon 1.4X III teleconverter. The exposure settings were 1/1000 sec, f/ 8.0, ISO 800, 560 mm.
