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~

Just as soon as one of them took flight, a Red-Winged Blackbird took off after it~

While driving through horse country the other day, I came upon a pair of Red-Tailed Hawks.  Just as soon as one of them took flight, a Red-Winged Blackbird took off after it.  It was amazing how it kept up with the hawk for quite a long distance, before finally giving up the chase~

    Have a great day.
