Jasmine Loves To Fly
Jazzy, being a bird, loves to fly. When she's out she knows which places she's allowed to fly to. We have a birdie agreement that she only goes to her designated spots, because there are many places in the house that would be dangerous for her. It prevents her from doing damage to herself or anything else!
One of her regular flight paths is to and from her play station and cage. Here you can see her launching herself from the top of her cage.
Then in mid-flight.
And finally, touching down on the top of her play station.
Last weekend she was helping me do the dishes in the kitchen; well, she's great at giving moral support and encouragement.
She was perched on top of her travel cage in the open hatch between the kitchen and the living room. And once we'd finished the dishes she decided to take her first flight from there to her play station.
You can just about see her, a dark spot, there in the hatch with the white cupboards behind her.
Before she knew all the right places to go, she's flown many a time through the hatch when she wanted something. But they were always spur of the moment events. This, by strong contrast, was premeditated flight. She needed to psyche herself up a bit.
We were urging her on with excited exclamations: "Come on, you can do it, Jazzy! You can do it!"
Convinced and determined she began lift off.
And she's off!
She's absolutely gorgeous in full flight.
Here she comes in for the landing.
After arriving she was extremely pleased with herself.
