Thistles and Eagles, May 24, 2017

ABC Wednesday, Wildflower Wednesday, Wild Bird Wednesday, and
Wednesday Around The World

ABC Wednesday and Wildflower Wednesday
T is for Thistle - The common name for a group of flowering plants with very prickly leaves.

Shiloh, Tennessee, USA, April 11, 2017
Thistles are invasive, and are considered to be noxious weeds in fields and pastures.

It is a wildflower that only the bees and butterflies can love! If you put thistle seeds in your bird feeders, the Thistle family of plants produced those seeds. And aren't the blooms pretty!

Wild Bird Wednesday and Wednesday Around The World

Shiloh, Tennessee, USA, May 16, 2017
The Bald Eagles, Haliaeetus leucocephalus, nesting in Shiloh National Military Park raised two eaglets this year. I don't know if this is the proud papa or the wonderful mama, but they certainly have reason to be proud.

One of the eaglets is still staying close to the nest.

The other one, perhaps the older of the two, is venturing out onto the tree branches. The young eagles will be several years old before they have the white head and tail feathers of adults.

I hope you are having a wonderful day!

"Endless Summer' is a mural painted on metal. I hope the reflections are not too distracting; it was a brilliantly sunny day.

It is on the side of this 1957 Chevrolet that I saw at the Blue Suede Cruise car show in Tupelo.

Have a wonderful day!

The Barn Collective, May 21, 2017

McNairy County, Tennessee, USA, May 16, 2016
Because this barn was near an intersection of two roads, I was able to get three views of it.
This is the east side.

Here is the view from the south.

And then the west side. I am afraid that the next strong wind will being it down.

Sky Watch Friday, May 19, 2017

Shiloh, Tennessee, USA, May 16, 2017
Tuesday was a beautiful day to go bird-watching at Shiloh National Military Park. A pair of Bald Eagles nest there each year.

One of the adult eagles was posing for photos. If it could write, it would be giving autographs!

Have a beautiful day!

Good Fences and Thankful Thursday, May 18, 2017

McNairy County, Tennessee, USA, May 1, 2017
I am always looking for birds perched on fences or for an animal behind the fence, but this is the most unusual thing I have ever seen on a fence!

I had to go back and look a second time. I wonder what happened to the rest of the truck.

And for Thankful Thursday, I am thankful that my old car (2000 Chevy Impala) is still running!

I hope you are having a great day!
