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~

And Then There Was One~

Part Two of a Series of Two~

After the female hawk had flown away, I just stood and watched the male.  He was such a handsome hawk and he preened a long while and then either a Barn Swallow, or a Red-winged Blackbird would take turns at taking a swipe toward him, but he did not seem to care much.  He just kept going about his own business.  This pair is quite a good distance from our home, but I have seen them several times in this same location~


  1. Great photographs again Mary.

  2. So lovely, these two posts,
    seen these two beautiful hawks warms one's heart, doesn't it?

  3. A nice set of shots Mary. I don't suppose a swallow is going to worry a large hawk like that. They must get used to a bit of hassling from other birds.
