Willy Nilly Friday 5, Sky Watch Friday, Orange You Glad It's Friday, Weekend Reflections,
and on Saturday, Saturday's Critters, and I'd Rather B Birdin'

All of these photos were made last Saturday when we went with friends to look for Autumn leaf color.

Not only do we say y'all here in the South, we write it, too!

3. Favorite Photo of the Week (Orange You Glad It's Friday)

Pond Cypress trees, Taxodium ascendens, in their Autumn foliage.

4. Rock Spring Nature Trail (Weekend Reflections and Saturday's Critters)
Lauderdale County, Alabama, USA, November 3, 2018
Rock Spring Nature Trail is a short walking trail that goes up and down a hill and alongside a pond. It is on the Natchez Trace Parkway just north of the Tennessee River.

It was a pleasant walk with pretty reflections in the pond.

The Autumn leaves were casting a yellow reflection at the edge of the pond, and I was quite pleased to get this photo of the turtles!

5. Heron and Crow (I'd Rather B Birdin')
Waterloo, Alabama, USA, November 3, 2018
The Great Blue Heron and the Crow (Raven?) spent several minutes together under a Pond Cypress tree. Do you think maybe they were talking about the chance of rain? (It did rain the next day).

Or perhaps the Great Blue Heron was bragging about what a large fish it caught and ate about 10 minutes earlier. It is absolutely amazing how much a heron's throat can stretch to swallow a large fish! (And their stomachs are very flexible, too).

Have a wonderful day!

    1. At one time the Pond Cypress was considered to be a variety of Bald Cypress, but now botanists are beginning to believe that it is a separate species.
      Have a wonderful day!

  5. The crow and heron shot is my favourite of these. The pond cypress trees caught my eye- I doubt those grow anywhere near here.

  10. I love that first photo. That bridge seems like it goes on forever.

    I love the word "Y'all" or however you spell it. It doesn't come naturally to me as I grew up in the mountain west. We always used "you guys" instead of y'all. My favorite story is from a cousin of mine who was married to an Air Force officer. They were stationed in Alabama and at a neighborhood gathering she told everybody that "you guys" are invited to dinner next Friday. The next Friday she said about about ten of the husbands showed up.
    Anyway, have a good weekend.
