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

Click on the photos to see them at their best.

1. Clouds (Sky Watch Friday)
Lee County, Mississippi, USA, June 17, 2020
We have had beautiful blue skies this week with fluffy white clouds.

The crop in the field is Winter Wheat, ready for harvesting. Then the farmer will probably plant soybeans (to be harvested in November).

2. Babies on the Porch!
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 11, 2020
I have been very careful when watering one of the hanging baskets on my porch.

A pair of Carolina Wrens raised their babies there!
I saw two, but could get a photo of only one.
Now that they have flown, I can stop just misting the plant and give it a really good drink of water!

3. What I am Reading
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 19, 2020
I am enjoying the Secrets of Wayfarers Inn series of books.

A brief summary from the back of the first book "Family Secrets."

4. Anole (Saturday's Critters)
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 10, 2020
I found a Green Anole, Anolis carolinensis, enjoying its insect lunch in a flower pot on my porch!

5. Green Heron (I'd Rather B Birdin' and Weekend Reflections)
Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, June 15, 2020
a Green Heron, Butorides virescens,...

stalking its prey, and then suddenly...

… a dinner of fresh-caught fish!

Have a wonderful day!

    Greetings Elke

  3. I can never recognize the winter wheat. Thank you for sharing.

  4. Love the green heron pics, Lea! And the wee wren!

  5. All super shots, Lea. I love the sky shot---clouds are a fav of mine. I like the Green Heron---I have only seen one--once.

  6. I was surprised that my favorite picture wasn't one with the birds, but the winter wheat. Just something about the lighting and the color attracted me. We had those puffy clouds earlier in the week but now it's just haze.

  7. Hello, Lovely sky capture! love the sequence of Green Heron photos. The baby wren and the anole are adorable. Great series of photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Enjoy your day, have a happy weekend!

  8. I'm not sure my comment went through! I love the Green heron and the beautiful field of winter wheat! Hugs!

  11. Hello. Great serie. Photos of Green heron are wonderful.

  13. To have a nest on your porch!!...oh my gosh, a dream of mine. And, love the heron shots.

  14. I love all your photos, especially those of the birds and the Green Anole. Nature is so wonderful and you have captured it beautifully!

  15. Those first pictures show you are in a different season to me. Winter walks and rain here.

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
