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~

Captured Pileated images in flight~

Sometimes my camera fails me miserably in that it will not always focus on something quick enough, especially something moving in flight. I had just released a water turtle and happened to glance up when this wonderful Pileated came in my direction.  My camera was faithful this time and so I can thus share these images, and I am very delieghted with them too~


  1. I am admiring your captures greatly!
    Getting clear photos about fast moving objects is not easy at all - I have poor experiences :)

    Good Thursday to you, Mary!

  2. Brilliantly done Mary. It looks positively prehistoric in flight and I never realised they had that two pronged tail shape.

  3. These are wonderful! They must be really hard to get in flight and you did a perfect job! Wow!


I enjoy each visitor to "Red Shouldered Hawks of Tingsgrove and Beyond" I truly appreciate those who have become followers to my blog and really am encouraged by the wonderful comments.
FYI if you leave ANONYMOUS comments, they will never get published, so please don't waste your time.

Thanking you~
