"Ground Hornbill With Prize"

It was hilarious to watch this ground hornbill (Bucorvus leadbeateri) in Kruger National Park, South Africa. Shuffling along with his prize centipede, he would repeatedly find new prey, drop the centipede, and eat the new item. Then he would pick up the centipede once again and continue his quest.

This image was named a Top 100 image in the NANPA Showcase 2009. It also appeared in the NANPA Expressions magazine and is featured on the NANPA website.
