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~

Timing Was Picture Perfect~

As an active birder, I am always, always on the look out for birds, even when I am driving...very slowly along country lanes in our county.  I was doing just that on Thursday and it was one of those sweet moments...a gorgeous Red-tailed Hawk was atop a utility pole.  I had just barely passed it by and pulled into a drive way.  I slowly got out of my car with the camera ready and was able to get some pretty darn good captures, even if I do say so myself...and I felt quite pleased with the results~

  3. Yes, you said it Mary, some great captures. Sounds like you drive like me, one eye on the road and one on the sky.

  4. Great post. Never leave your camera at home because that is when you will something unbelievable. Great pictures as usual.

  5. Wow yes excellent weather conditions for these magnificent pictures Mary. They are awesome!

  6. I too keep an eye to the sky. Hawks so common on the edge of the highway. On a trip to yellowstone last year we returned through North Dakota. Spotted a Hawk on a fencepost. Stopped and took photos. It was a Swainson's Hawk. A hawk I had not seen before.Great photos. When I hear the screeching in the yard it is such a joy to look up and watch the show. Thanks for sharing.

  7. ... pleased; you should be absolutely delighted Mary. These are excellent shot showing superb detail. Well done.
