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~

Could You Please Move Away From the Wire~

These Red-tailed Hawk images were taken on Covered Bridge Road in Prospect, KY.

Share with World Bird Wednesday~  

I had to slightly alter the background on the bottom 2 images, as the sky was quite gray, once the hawk got further away from the wires that I was all but standing under when the bird took flight.  We are having rain, rain, and more rain, no snow in the offing for our Christmas. 







I really liked this image, not sure why, just really did~



I lightened the background on the following 2 images, as the gray skies were really murky the further away the hawk flew~

  17. The hawks are my fav bird also,their wing span & the way that they can see their prey from so far amazes me.I also like the 4th pic,he kinda has "eyes in the back of his head."

  18. Marvelous Mary! You would think wires and lamp posts were invented just for the birds if you didn't know better. I am partial to that same rear view that you are, maybe it's that beautiful fan of red tail feathers!
    Happy New Year!
