Imagery

Some images from around the farm in late summer and early fall.







When the farmers start harvesting it kicks a bunch of dust up in the atmosphere and we get these brilliant multicolored sunsets.



My sunflowers



And Again



I was photographing a local cemetery one evening and caught this guy taking a rest. A most unusual critter.



Check out his wings. I thought maybe he was molting at first. But I think it's just coloring.



One of my peach trees.



The pear tree



The 1948 Ford Model 8N tractor I use to mow, pull fence posts and scoop snow on the farm.



A barn swallow that made a home under the eve of my front porch this summer. The nest was just vacated last weekend.



Sunset sunflower at sunset.



Peace,

Wander

Gorgeous photos, especially the sunflower at the end. I like the dragonfly as well. :)

The dragonfly felt otherwordly. I'd normally say he was there for me but he never moved or did anything or attmepted any form of communication so it might have just been a random sighting. Still, he was really cool.

Those sunsets...just wow.

That dragonfly is beautiful. I saw a blue one a few weeks ago and I have a green one on my bookshelf with my rabbit tail. I apparently live in Dragonfly Junction.

Oh, and your tractor looks like a bug. Its name should be Spider.

It presently doesn't have a name so Spider it will be. Especially since it lives in the lean-to section of the barn with lots of other spiders.

Yeah, the midwest don't have a lot to keep you here but what we do have we have lots of. Awesome sunsets are a regular occurence but I never get tired of them. I don't see all that many dragonlies away from water and this guy was a mile or more from the nearest major water source.

Yeah, it's great enetertainment around here to sit on your front porch and watch the sun go down during harvest season. Lots better than anything on TV.

It's always good. Hey, remember Grandpa, my other long haired hippie friend from the party? He got married a few weeks back. Cut his hair, wore a tux and everything.

The tractor is possessed. It's like the Christine of tractors, I swear. I use it quite a bit to mow with this time of year. The flower was just one of those extremely lucky shots that you know you only have seconds to capture.

Yeah he is a good guy. I'll post a pic of him sometime. I've visited him in Kings Mountain as well. I used to live not too far away from him but I didn't know him then.
