and on Saturday, Saturday's Critters, and I'd Rather B Birdin'

Click on the photos to see them at their best.

1. Rain, Rain, and more Rain! (Sky Watch Friday)
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, February 5, 2020
We are having a very mild Winter here in northeast Mississippi, but with several rainy days each week. Our total rainfall for January was 13.8 inches (35 cm). That is more than double our average January rain.

2. When you come to a Fork in the Road...
Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, January 28, 2020
This fork was actually in a parking lot, but it reminded me of what Yogi Berra said, "When you come to a fork in the road, take it!" And if you saw "The Muppet Movie" you may remember that a fork in the road was marked by a huge fork standing upright in the middle of the road!

3. A Look Back in Time (Signs 2 and Weekend Reflections)
Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, January 28, 2020
"Tupelo Welcomes Elvis Presley Home" photo from 1956 in the window of Reed's Department Store with the present day street scene reflected in the windows.

4. Earthworm (Saturday's Critters)
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, January 16, 2020
We have had so much rain this Winter that we sometimes see earthworms on top of the ground. Earthworms must have air; they can drown when the soil gets too water-logged. This one was moving along at a pretty good pace. (Its head is to the left side of the photo).

5. Hawk (I'd Rather B Birdin')
McNairy County, Tennessee, USA, February 2, 2020
This Red-tailed Hawk, Buteo jamaicensis,  was busy preening its feathers when my husband stopped the car so I could get a photo.

I made a few quick photos, and then we drove on so we did not scare it into flying away.

Have a wonderful day!

  1. We are under a winter storm warning with 5 to 8 inches of snow expected today. I hope you escaped the severe weather in the Southeast today. I enjoyed your hawk pictures and you brought back memories of old Looney Tunes cartoons with forks in the road. Have a drier week!

  2. That Red-tailed Hawk was very obliging to pose for you in that manner.

  3. The hawk is giving you the eye!

  4. Great variety of photos. Love the captures of the hawk.

  5. Whoa, that's a lot of rain! I love the old photo in the department store window. Very historic. Also the fork in the road. Have a great weekend!

  6. Fascinada com a fotografia do garfo.

  7. Fine reflections shot with the old and new. Those old times were not all good. Love your hawk shots.

  8. You covered a lot of territory and blog link parties. I am always amazed when I find an earthworm in my raised bed garden. Since the soil is isolated I wonder where it came from. - Margy

  9. So that's where I left my fork! LOL.

  10. Love the photographs of the Hawk. Have a great weekend.

  11. Rain rain rain!!! We got the same here with lowland flooding. Like your Hawk.

  12. ...I love the fork in the road.

  13. Hello, we have had a lot of rain lately. That looks like a huge worm, some birds might get lucky. Great captures of the Hawk. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend.

  14. We seem to be having the same winter! Love the old photo with the current scene in the reflection! What a cool find that fork in the road! The hawk is beautiful! That worm better hide!

  15. Love the lighting on your hawk photos! And, the fork in the road stories/share and photo of one you found was all new for me.

    thanks for linking up at I'd Rather B Birdin' this week.
