No Oscar, But He's Pollywood’s Leading Man
So there I was, on a hot afternoon in Perth a few days ago, looking for a polygon - but I had to make do with a "polly gone" instead. The brilliant hues of this macaw’s plumage caught my attention, so I had to get a shot of him, just to capture the great colours.
Fans of the peerless TV comedy troupe Monty Python would remember the famous Dead Parrot Sketch, but there were no such worries here. This bloke wasn’t dead. He wasn’t stuffed. He hadn’t even been to a taxidermist.
He’s simply a toy parrot. Yup, flip a switch and he’ll greet you with a marvellously authentic voice. So, yes, you can get really close to him – and he’ll never get his (or your) feathers ruffled.
