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~

Gorged Robin, Stashing Woodpecker, Chipy and Autumn Colours~

The American Robin was resting after gorging itself on a variety of berry offerings on the local trees and bushes~

Colours of Autumn around Oldham County~

Wild mushrooms, these were really cool~

A local Chipmunk was taken by surprise, when a local cat came hunting, about the same time, I came hunting;) 

A Downy Woodpecker hunting out insects and also stashing away seeds for later~


  1. Mary, your wild life shots are wonderful. Love that little chipmunk, and the hawk shot is amazing!

  2. gorgeous rich scenery! love those fences!!!

  3. Nice. The autumn is beautiful, the Robin and Woodpecker make it so.

  4. I love those collages Mary – all those strong colours, especially the blacks and greens. When you say those mushrooms were cool I hope you didn’t eat any?

  5. Those are gorgeous colors and birds. Our autumn is drawing to a quick close with a winter storm on the way this week.

  6. ahhh! love the chippy and the fall colors!
