Get ready to smile your face completely off. If animals doing people things isn't a phenomenon you're aware of — you're welcome, because it's my favorite way to de-stress. Some prefer yoga, some like to meditate, but that's probably because they've never spent ten minutes watching budgies kick-flip into the sunset. Six years ago, Trieste Visier of Sydney, Australia, started training her birds to skateboard (and do other, decidedly human things). After finding model success with her budgie, Willow, Visier made a photography project of parakeets-in-action. And I am so, so SO glad she did. Check out a selection of the photos below, and visit Visier's blog for more here.
