Species: Zebra, Oxpecker | Location: Maasai Mara National Park , Kenya
Driving by herds of zebras in Kenya, I noticed the oxpeckers would settle on their backs, but would fly away when they heard my car. I asked my driver to turn off the engine, and we waited. Within a few minutes, the ox peckers returned and landed on the zebras' backs. I looked for a nice way to "frame" the bird, and found this: between two zebras. I love how the beak pops between the lines.

About The Photographer
As a veterinarian, I offer a special look into the eyes and souls of the animals I photograph. My ability to read and anticipate animal behavior allows me to catch "special moments" and give you a glimpse into their rich emotional lives and unique personalities.
Many of the animals I photograph are endangered. I hope that you will connect with them through my lens, love them as I do, and join me in the fight to help them.
My passions also include street photography, travel photography, and interesting land and cityscapes. I take my camera with me always, and love capturing the people of New York City where I live today, and my native home of Jerusalem. But animals will always have my heart...
