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

Click on the photos to see them at their best.

Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, October 15, 2021
Turtles usually dive under the water before I can get a photo, but this one waited for me. Thanks Mr. Turtle!

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, October 15, 2021
After a brief rain shower yesterday, I saw this Black Vulture, Coragyps atratus, spreading its wings with its back to the sun to dry its feathers.

Have a wonderful weekend!

I am linking in today with Saturday's Critters and I'd Rather B Birdin'

  1. Hello, Lea
    The turtles are kind of camera shy. I love the turtle and the Black Vulture. They are both great sightings and photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a happy weekend!

  2. As you say, turtles have a way of slipping into the water the moment you raise your camera! This one was a little more cooperative.

  3. Glad Mr. Turtle obliged. Nice sighting.

    My latest post:

  4. ..the turtles in my neck of the woods never cooperated with me this year!

  5. I saw a Turkey Vulture soaring around this morning. It is always a thrill to see a turtle in the wild.

  6. Turtles are so neat and perch in such precarious positions! Good photos! Happy weekend!

  7. Great photos of the critters! Thanks for the reminder to join in the "Saturday's critters" theme.

  8. Love both photos today! Great timing on the open vulture majestic.
    Thanks for linking up with us this week!
