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~

A Few Close-ups From Last Post~

Adding a few close-up images of my post from yesterday.  A few of them were kind of tiny.  Have a very wonderful and safe weekend~

The female Red-shouldered Hawk returning to her nest after another battle of wills against the Great Horned Owl~

Crows chasing the Great Horned Owl.  It looked like either a cotton tail bunny,  or a kitten ;( that the owl had grabbed~

The hen looking down into the well of her nest...any day the chicks shall hatch...yeah.  Here is praying all goes well for once ~

       The nearly one year old juvie Red-shouldered hawk yelling at the Great Horned Owl~
