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~

My Second Blogging Anniversary Presentation~

How does one go about choosing their favorite photographs taken in a year's is very difficult when you take hundreds of images nearly every day during that year.  I have just completed selecting what I felt were my favorites and turned most of them into collages.  I saved my very favorite ones as singles.  It has been such a great pleasure for me to get to know each of you.  To share your beauty in nature, to share your lives even in a small way.  It is so exciting being able to view your selections from around the world.  Since tomorrow is Father's Day, I would also like to wish each of you whom are father's a very special and blessed day with your family and friends~


  1. Happy Blogoversary Mary! This post is an incredible show of your photographic prowess! Of course, you know my favorite Buteo is the Red-shouldered Hawk and your photos show these raptors real beauty.

    The Great Horned Owl in the snow with its prey is an amazing capture! And the Red-tailed Hawks are gorgeous.

    Keep them coming is all I can say and thank you for sharing them with us.

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.
