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~

Little Wings & a Big Heart~

The young Eyas is growing larger wings by the day and my heart is growing even more for this little beauty in nature and I am also a wee bit concerned.  Our temperatures are in the 90's with lows in the mid to upper 70's and high humidity.  The little eyas is another couple of weeks from fledging and there is hardly any shade canopy over the nest.  In fact it is simply in the sun all day long. The young one keeps it's mouth wide open with it's tongue out just about all day long and nature must provide. It was alos kind of endearing when the hen began to pick off little bits of food left on the young one's face with her beak, ever so tenderly~
