there are several visual tricks going on here. The foreshortened feathers echo the bokeh. The bird looks like it's chained by the leg. The bokeh obliterates the sense of depth and looks more like a curtain directly behind the bird,, which in turn makes the bird's perch look like a stage or a pedestal. I'm reminded of King Kong performing on Broadway. It's an absurd photo, but also absurdly entertaining.

I'm hanging this in my fantasy art gallery

Itís really the prettiest and most gullible chained bird - wait, itís just fooling us and posing while enjoying the vista
