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~

Search for Peregrine Falcons Lead to One Light Morph Red-Tailed Hawk~

Peregrine Falcons, the fastest bird in the world resides very close to where we live.  A man made nest chamber was erected at a location about 20 miles from Tingsgrove, and there had been four hatches and four fledged just last week.  My husby, pup-cub and I drove over this morning to take a look-see. The pastoral drive over was simply beautiful and then once at location, I felt hopeful.  I had permission to stay as long as I desired, but the temperatures the past two days has been 94, and the humidity is awful, so we left after a brief visit.  As we were leaving, I caught a look at a beautiful hawk just beginning it's soar and the sun was so bright, I was not certain what I was photographing, but hoped it would be a Peregrine.  It turned out to be a light morph Red-tailed Hawk.   Beautiful all the while~


  1. I like your pictures, and they look so much like around here. Beautiful shots of the hawk.

  2. Beautiful flight shots Mary and nice to see the environment in which it lives!!

  3. Beautiful shots. I agree, your flight shots are devine.

    Hopefully I am back from all my wanderings.

  4. A really nice sequence of pictures Mary. I like the way you interspersed the landscape shots in there.
