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~

Teaching Her Young One the Ropes~

It sure is dark in the woods and I almost missed viewing this little bit of action at one of the bird feeders.  These were taken from peering over the top of an aluminum ladder, and hoping that I would not disturb anything. There was only the adult female and one young fledgling and it was quite the little charming chap~

 Adult on the left feeding her single young one...maybe the male was out and about feeding the others~
 Female adult on right offering a seed to your young one~


  1. Cracking pictures of the little Downies Mary. You did really well getting them in that poor woodland light.

  2. Brilliant photos of the baby woodie.

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.
