Zoo Week – Day One – Parrot

I’m not going to sit here and debate zoo practices. I see those arguments come up in photography magazines and on-line forums anytime a pic from a zoo shows up. I’m just here to share pics. That said, this parrot looked pretty ticked off, and eyed everyone suspiciously.

On the other hand, it’s a parrot. Perhaps I’m over-anthropomorphizing him. (Or her.)

Perhaps I should have just done a pirate joke here.  Arrrrr….
