From the ground level perspective of the photographic hide, a cape buffalo drinks at the watering hole. As the red billed oxpecker manoeuvres around the large face of the buffalo, it settles in on the front of the nose when it appears to see itself in the windows reflection. Its head turned upside down as it tried to understand who was looking back at it. The relationship between these species is generally a mutualistic one where by they both benefit from the presence of the other. In this case, the buffalo simply made the backdrop for this curious bird to admire itself as it conducted the mirror test of unusual behaviour for self recognition.
