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~

Two Species, Two Days, Two Lakes~

My vacation images are finally winding down, and I had wanted to firmly ID one of the birds before posting it, and I am pretty positive that it is an immature Double-crested Cormorant.  Though it is difficult to tell from the images, the ducks were a pair of Mallards. I took both sets of images while visiting the Dakotas~


  1. Great photographs Mary.
    Have a nice weekend.

  2. I'm sure you are correct at Double-crested Cormorant Mary - easier if they weren't continually diving underwater. I hope you have a great weekend but its Saturday evening here now.


I love and enjoy each visitor to "Red Shouldered Hawks of Tingsgrove and Beyond." I truly appreciate those who have become followers to my blog and really am encouraged by the wonderful comments. I also enjoy leaving comments and would like to ask that you please make your blog word verification free! You still have top security settings and you still have control over the comments published. It would make it so much easier, if you would consider doing this. I switched several months ago and am thrilled with the results.
FYI if you leave ANONYMOUS comments, they will never get published, so please don't waste your time~
