[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Similar to the previous ox pecker, same series, different frame. The ox peckers have this habit of clinging to game in search of parasites such as ticks unfortunately the use of pesticides have reduced their numbers dramatically.

Fine catch and superb sharpness in a perfect framing

Hello Erwin, an astonishing sight; I just wonder how the bird is managing to hold on!
Good sharp shot.I like the close up and the blurred bg.
