Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

She had been flitting in loops prior to this while the male gleefully chased her about~

While photographing the Finches a female Cardinal came into view. I took a few photographs of her and caught her as she jumped up for a swift take off. She had been flitting in loops prior to this while the male gleefully chased her about. Guess she wanted to attract his attention with this leap up in the air~


  1. Great take off shot! Our Cardinals seem to be here there and everywhere at the moment! One female is trying to discouage the Chickadees from my new gourd birdhouses :-(

  2. Fantastic flight shot. You got it right girl.

  3. I just love watching birds doing their Spring ritual dances.

  4. Wow the first shot is sumptuous, the motion effect is superb and that's not the kind of pictures we are used to see... My favorite for sure!
