Regarding the baby indian parrot. I do not 'love' this. If you look closely, the baby lying out of focus in the background is dead. And if you look behind the hand, you can see the green feathers of a dead adult lying on the ground as well. The text accompanying this photo even says this baby is one of hundreds kidnapped from the wild and smuggled for the pet trade. Why would one love that?

That's adorable! But it's not ok that it's being taken for food or money. It's not ok.

This is actually breaking my heart, many of the birds die in the smuggling operations, and taking them away so young, its just wrong. I have seen much abuse of birds in India and elsewhere, for me this is far from a nice photo by any means.
