The Barn Collective, September 25, 2016

Lee County, Mississippi, USA, September 15, 2016
It is hard to tell if this was a barn or a house, but I think it was a barn. A couple of trees propping it up are the only reason it is not flat on the ground. If only it could talk...

Have a blessed day!

Lake Guntersville Critters, September 24, 2016

Guntersville, Alabama, USA, September 9, 2016
Lake Guntersville is on the Tennessee River in eastern Alabama. We saw several interesting critters while we were there. Do you see the white bird swimming about halfway between the lakeshore and the pier?

It is a Ring-Billed Gull, Larus delawarensis. When it reached the shore, it settled down on this rock as if it were a nest.

I believe these are Mallard Ducks, Anas platyrhynchos. Aren't those babies cute?


A Green Heron, Butorides virescens, was wading in the shallow water looking for food.
I think that is an eel that it is eating.

Have a wonderful week-end!

Mallards, September 21, 2016

Male Mallard Ducks, Pickwick, Tennessee, USA, September 12, 2016
Mallard Ducks, Anas platyrhynchos, can be found in many places around the world. They are able to breed with other duck species, creating hybrids that may outnumber the native ducks. As usual in the bird world, the males are more colorful than the females.

Female Mallard Duck, Pickwick, Tennessee, USA, September 12, 2016
The females lay 8 to 10 eggs in a down-lined nest hidden in marsh grass or a brush pile near the shore of a pond, lake, or marsh. Soon after the female begins incubation of the eggs, the male abandons her and does not help with raising the ducklings. Mallards eat fish and other water creatures, and may graze on grass and grain.

Hope you are having a great day!

It was only after I loaded my photos onto the computer that I noticed that the cloud looks like it is coming out of the top of the silo!

Have a blessed day!

Critters: Deer, September 17, 2016

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, September 8, 2016
Deer are so pretty; I love seeing them. But they come right up to the house and eat my flowers! I made this photo through my dining room window.

Hope you have a happy day!
