*Earth | Autumn

Ears of corn listen

as sunflowers bow their heads

give thanks

to Earth

a place for Mother Nature’s

Generous bounty

  1. WOW, beautiful! I love seeing fields with crops; corn, sunflowers and everything else! It is a joy driving through areas of farmland and seeing the different crops.

    Love your header photo; we have enjoyed one White-breasted Nuthatches this summer (maybe its mate was somewhere around). Recently two Red-brested Nuthatches are visiting our yard.They zip in, pick a seed from the feeder and zip away!


    1. I haven’t seen White-breasted in our yard for a while. The red- breasted are permanent neighbors, however! They are so fast at snatching a meal. Whenever I can claim a good photo it’s a very happy moment. I can understand why you enjoy the visitors to your yard, Sheila ❤️😀


  2. I’m laughing, Janet… this photo was a drive-by shot taken at a much slower speed along a state highway. My husband and I noticed the field on an afternoon outing to a nearby lake. We noted where the field was so on the way back I would know when to roll down the window to take my chances at getting a photo. He even pulled over a few times prior to the field to let traffic pass, anticipating that he would have to slow down when we got back to this spot!

    Love the bonus- that you can enjoy these. Although I imagine the fields in S.D. Are much more extensive.

  3. Such simple beauty. Reminds me of the fields of sunflowers I see every year in South Dakota. Unfortunately, I’m always fly along I-90 at 85 mph and there’s nowhere to stop to get a good photo. I’ll just have to enjoy these. 🙂
