Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition

I have lots of brand new photos to choose from so I did a quick scan and found a couple that fit the challenge.  Both of these photos feature the pairings of a large animal with a small one – in both of these cases a bird.  The first is obviously a Zebra but with a starling visitor on his back.  These starlings are almost irridescent blue/black with bright yellow eyes – presenting a contrast even with the most contrasting of animals – the Zebra.

The second photo positions one of the smallest and quickest birds in Africa, the Pied Kingfisher with one of the largest and slowest mammals on the planet, the African Elephant.  I was focused on the Kingfisher and was happy that I was able to also capture the Elephant as part of the background for the shot…..

The first photo was taken in the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania and the second was taken from a boat in the Kazinga Channel in Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda

    • Hi Janet – Our safaris were so incredibly full, it was hard to decide which scenes to try and capture. These are a very small sample of the scenes that present themselves virtually every minute. Simply amazing!
