Photographer's Note

The scene is on Champagne Beach in Vanuatu, and the birds, I believe, are a Kingfisher and a Parrot. Their handler explained that the birds had been trained to congregate, to watch each other's back, and to behave as one. As friends, they've resisted the aphorism, "Birds of a feather stick together!" But I imagine, the Kingfisher looks at the parrot and says, "I must look just like him." And the parrot looks at the Kingfisher and pronounces, "I must look just like him." Ultimately, they are birds of a different feather and they don't know otherwise.
