Southern Yellow-billed Hornbill – also know as Mr. Banana Beak 😊
Yellow-Billed Hornbills sometimes forage co-operatively with Dwarf Mongooses, catching food that the mongooses scratch up from the ground. In return, the hornbills alert the mongooses to danger from overhead raptors.
Wildlife Photography – Rule Number 9 – Eliminate fences
When you deal with a fence between you and your subject get as close to the fence as possible without touching it (legal moves only, please :-). Extend your zoom to the largest tele setting and open the aperture full. The ideal situation is for your subject to be in the middle between the front fence and back
