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~

Seven Weeks of Freedom From the Nest~

It is hard to believe that on September 5, it shall have been 2 months since the young one took it's first flight.  For several weeks it has pretty much stayed a good five to six acres away, coming my way only for a quick dash and look-see and then a mad flight back to where the adults come to feed it.  The past two weeks however, I am hearing it from all directions including soaring high above the grove.  It is always so exciting watching them thrive and begin their hunting skills.  I watched the juvie for a very long time, until the Mosquitos just about did me in ( and that is with the full use of Cutter spray, I might add...urghhh) the other day, and as the images will show, it is looking simply said, marvelous~


  1. Mary, There is nothing quite like a young bird in its immaculate juvenile feathering, a joy to behold as you have shown us.

  2. A great bird Mary.. becoming a beautiful adult.
