I rode my bike to the hayfield and raked hay for a couple of hours to help out. I really enjoy doing it.
Here's the view from my seat.
Several hawks were flying over and swooping down onto the mowed field to check out the mouse population or perhaps they wanted grasshoppers which were in abundance.
A buck antelope had his place in the sun.
Bales and bales and now some square bales too.
I saw this fox pup as I was going up and down the field. At one point he disappeared and then I saw him jump out from behind a stack of bales. He sat there awhile and looked at me as I stopped to watch him...
...he had some itchy spots...
...then he stood up, stretched, and moved along to the creek below.
Someone was keeping track of how many rows he had raked. See the tally marks?
At home I noticed some warblers (I think they were warblers) darting in and out of the lattice on the front porch. Perhaps they were young birds.
The sky was beautiful again.
And the sunflowers were bright and full of bee life.
