These wings must look their best!


Wings are the go-to item for both Meyer's if they feel like preening while I take pictures.

An usual perching spot


For Piper in any case. Wouldn't be surprised to find Zuri there.

Maybe if I look interested in something down there....

...she'll look down too and put he camera away?


I really wouldn't be surprised if that thought went through her head at some point, but she does look genuinely interested in something, although I doubt there was anything of note on the ground at the time.

Joey

He gets really invested when he plays with certain items.


Something has got Pixel's attention
