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~

Images Taken July 5, Before First Flight Day~




















Yesterday I was so thrilled that the young one had flown that I had to skip a few great images to celebrate flight day.  This morning I could hear the young one from a good distance away and could not believe where it had gotten to, it's first night out last evening.  It was 5 acres from nest tree and 3 acres from Tingsgrove.  I was able to watch the adult female bring it a meal and the images shall be forthcoming and most probably dark, as I was in a huge patch of poison ivy as  I was and treading softly and could not manage any other positioning, less I end up with more of the dreaded rash, which I am just recovering from~
