    I'm not sure the subject finds it funny. :(

    I believe it. Not the way I would approach it though...

    this guy is definitely Chinese, note the watermark on the photo. I'm Chinese too but probably that's the only thing I have in common with our serious wildlife photographer!!

    Somewhat wrong colours for the prevailing background.

    Nice way to handle focus problems with birds :smile: Now for his next trick; how to get bears up close...

    Mr Catsuit had better hope that his disguise doesn't work as well as he planned. :tongue:

    The worst part with the OP is the bird was probably ill or tame to allow itself to be easily captured.

    I find it more of a serious idiot than a serious photographer.

    Perhaps, in the spirit of Monty Python, this was an "ex-parrot" (i.e. deceased but presented as if it was alive)? Or perhaps the photo was digitally altered? The ruffled feathers around the photographer's hand seem a bit off to me (or perhaps it's just my el-cheapo laptop monitor). The shadows look correct but the ruffles seem...off.

    If so, it's pretty funny :biggrin:

    Or perhaps the guy was really holding a live bird as depicted and he (the guy, not the bird) is simply a jerk.

    If so, it ain't funny at all :mad: 

    As for the catsuit...words simply fail me :eek: .
