It amazes me how the birds and the animals generally get on so well together while the birds clean the ticks off them. Maybe this one was getting a bit close to the face. Having said that the ears are usually where ticks disappear into!! Have a great Sunday. Diane

Fourth try .... but I see my login at the bottom now so this will probably work. :)

Very lovely shots Andrea. Maybe the zebra thought he did not have ticks? :)
