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~

Winter's Flooded Fields, a Hunter, and Sunrise With Starlings~

Several days ago, I posted hundreds of thousands of European Starlings which are roosting just down the lane from our home.  They even made the front page of our main newsprint this morning, having stayed around now since Thanksgiving Day and showing very little desire to leave...just yet. 

My entry for today shows an early morning visit to try and get some sunrise images with them...however, most of them went in the direction away from the sunrise...oh well, I got a few. 
The winter's flooded fields with a hint of winter snow, were taken in Southern Indiana two weeks ago, as was the hunter...the Red-tailed Hawk .
