Pictured: Two brightly coloured redbilled oxpeckers are perched on a large male warthog as it drinks from a waterhole. Photographer Martin Hadmyr captured the moment the warthog was joined by two birds in the Zimanga Natural Reserve, South Africa Martin from Helsingborg, Sweden took the images from an underground hide next to the waterhole, only four meters from the animals. He said "The bumps on a warthog's face are not warts, they are thick patches of skin that provide protection during fights. This one?was so big and old that his face now provides the oxpeckers with perches. A perfect match." "I am surprised to see oxpeckers sitting in his face like it's their home. He was so big that he had his own ecosystem." The 45 year old said "One can't help seeing such a big warthog without thinking of the movie 'The Lion King, this must be Pumbas old grandfather."
