Last Light on The Mara
This image was made at the end of a magnificent day in Maasai Mara, Kenya, and depicts the symbiosis that exists in the animal kingdom. These Oxpecker birds live most of their lives on the giraffe; they were startled into flight by the giraffe's movement, but quickly resettled on the giraffe's neck for their continued mutual symbiotic relationship.Nothing in the universe exists alone
. Every drop of water
, every human being
, all creatures in the web of life
, and all ideas in the web of knowledge are part of an immense
, dynamic whole as old
, and as young
, as the universe itself
. ~ "Symbiosis"
The Plus One Collection project by +Ivan Makarov
is an amazing cooperation between the talented community on Google+ and others in the world in producing a published photographic collection and helping others to also experience the joy of photography through this year's cooperative program in Kenya. I'm honored to be a part of this group by contributing this work to the publication. Thank you to Ivan Makarov and others in our wonderful G+ community who have dedicated their valuable time and expertise to this project. #plusonecollection2012 #plusphotoextract #HQSPanimals
