Top Shot: Close Call.
Your Shot photographer Samuel Cox captured this photo of a shocked Red Billed Oxpecker narrowly avoiding a quick shower from the raising head of a drinking giraffe.
“Just an excellent example of a perfectly timed image,” writes Your Shot producer Matt Adams, who selected this image for the Daily Dozen.
“I love the moment of the giraffe lifting it’s head up after taking a drink and the Red Billed Oxpecker is just placed in the right spot in this frame.
You have to be quick to grab a moment like this and know how to compose this photo. Great work, Samuel.”
