Willy Nilly Friday, June 14, 2019

Willy Nilly Friday 5, Sky Watch Friday,
and on Saturday, Saturday's Critters, and I'd Rather B Birdin'

1. Cooler temperatures! (Sky Watch Friday)
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 12, 2019
We are enjoying cooler temperatures this week, but the heat will be back this weekend. Do you see the tiny object in the sky just above the treetops? It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Superman? ...

It is either a powered parachute or a powered paraglider. I don't know the difference between the two terms.

2. Favorite Photos of the Week
Canada Geese, Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, June 9, 2019
Mother, Daddy, and the little ones!

Come on in! The water is fine!


3. Farming
Lee County, Mississippi, USA, June 13, 2019
Making hay while the sun shines!

This is the first year I have seen farmers bundle a lot of bales together...

… and load them on a truck with a fork-lift, though it may be more common in other parts of the country.

4. Butterfly (Saturday's Critters)
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, May 28, 2019
I did not know that a butterfly could look intimidating until I got this view of a Silver-spotted Skipper!

5. Phoebe (I'd Rather B Birdin')
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, May 28, 2019
Eastern Phoebe, Sayornis phoebe. This cute little bird is nesting on my front porch! She keeps a close eye on me when I am out there watering my flowers.

Have a wonderful day!

  1. It is cool here too today but heat is coming back our way. Great photos as always.

  2. Nice shots. The baby goslings are getting big.

  3. That Skipper looks fierce! Love the goose family!

  4. Wonderful shots of the geese.

    That is indeed a paraglider.

  5. There just start to cut hay here.
    Coffee is on

  6. I enjoy seeing the geese with their young. Hay around here is always in giant rolls. Rare to see hay bales, anymore.

  7. It's been so wet here. I wonder when the farmers will be able to cut hay. AT least we haven't flooded like the Midwest. Send a tiny (just a tiny) bit of that heat here?

  8. Cool looking power glider! Yes, that butterfly looks formidable! Does it have a double set of wings? Enjoy your weekend.

    1. Silver-spotted Skippers tend to hold their forewings and hindwings at different angles instead of together as other butterflies do. They do look like extra wings, especially when viewed from the front!
      Have a great weekend!

    2. The longer wing is the forewing; the shorter wing with the silver spot is the hindwing.

  9. Love the gosling and the skipper!

  10. Hello, nice variety of photos. I love the gosling and Phoebe. The Skipper is a great capture. Thanks for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your day and weekend.

  11. That butterfly is amazing! Love those baby Geese too! Fun pics for critters! Happy weekend!

  12. Awwww, those goslings and the phoebe are awesome!

    Thanks for joining us at I'd Rather B Birdin' this week!

  13. The Eastern Phoebe is a very nice looking bird.


I enjoy your comments!
