Argument, First Mosque, Old Delhi, India, 2008

The Might of Islam Mosque was India's first, built in 1193. Today, only its ruins remain, home to dozens of parrots. I found considerable incongruity in the sight of two parrots arguing while sunning themselves on a fallen column full of broken figures.

You are very observant, Jenene. Both the birds and the stone figures below them appear to be confrontational.

And the parrots clash as those broken figures before them have done.
