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

Click on the photos to see them at their best.

1. Tennessee River (Sky Watch Friday)
Tennessee River at Shiloh, Tennessee, USA, July 24, 2019
We have had sunny skies this week with cooler than normal temperatures.

2. Roadrunner (Signs, Signs)
Itawamba County, Mississippi, USA, July 21, 2019
Roadrunner Collision Service Center

3. Cactus Bloom (Floral Friday Fotos)
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, July 25, 2019
The Night Blooming Cactus, Epiphyllum, is a sprawling plant, but it makes up for its untidy habits by producing large blooms that open at night. My husband lit it up with a flashlight last night so I could get a good photo. The blooms are pollinated by night-flying insects, and they close up at dawn.

4. Long-legged Fly (Saturday's Critters)
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, July 9, 2019
Yes, I know that flies are pests, but when you see them up close, some of them are beautiful! And actually, the Long-legged Fly is beneficial to the garden because it eats smaller insects such as aphids, gnats, beetle larva, and smaller flies.

5. Eastern Kingbird (I'd Rather B Birdin')
Stantonville, Tennessee, USA, July 24, 2019
Eastern Kingbirds, Tyrannus tyrannus, are migratory birds we see here in North America in the Spring and Summer. They spend the Winter in South America.

Have a wonderful day!

  8. Eastern Kingbirds are having a prolific breeding season this year. Young birds seem to be everywhere.

  9. Great job getting that beautiful night blooming cactus (thanks to both of you).... a lovely collection today highlighting the natural beauty of your area (and the whimsy...roadrunners, real or not, always make me smile!)

  10. I would love to see the night blooms for myself...that is soooo pretty. I like that picture of the Tennessee River, too.
