Barely out of the water and already reflecting on it.

I thought of the Dr Seuss book th Lorax when I processesd this. "I am the Lorax.  I speak for the trees for the trees have no tounges."

It's not easy being green.....
That song is stuck in my head after processing this image.  He looks so happy.

This years crop fresh out of the ground.  In this high heat and humidity I'm sure these seedlings have doubled in size by the time I post this.  Right here in Iowa, this is where we grow the tall corn.

I live in Iowa, we don't have mountains or stone arches for me to photograph.  We do have the machinery about the landscape that keeps the agriculture industry in America going.  @johndeere

A windmill in Iowa sitting and getting overgrown.  The blades are gone, it no longer pumps water to cattle.  It makes the flat landscape interesting.  That's its purpose now.

Outdated and broken combine sits under the stars rusting away in the middle of a field. 
Shot taken with low level lighting on the lowest setting.@canonusa

An old international combine sits in the field.  Been there for years now.  Corn is planted around it.  No reason to move it.  It's not bothering anything. 
Used some low level lighting for this panorama to light up the combine and cornstalks.  @canonusa

Its hard to find a windmill in Iowa with all its blades anymore.  This guy has a tree growing out of the bottom of it, kind of a knarly twisted little tree.  Dew covered the grass and the deer walking nearby.  Fog started rolling in off the river.  The stars were bright.  Perfect night.  @canonusa

There has been so much clouds and rain lately I feared it would never stop.  I had a guy tell me that if it rained on April 20th that we would have 20 days of rain in may.  Anyone been counting rain days here in Iowa?

A pied billed grebe here in Emmetsburg Ia.  A fantastic little diver.  They may not have the fantastic colors of many other marsh birds, but this dude is sleek and built to thrive in the water.

Another shoveler out of the wind.

I have noticed the shovelers like to be near the teal, but not too close.  Maintaining a personal space since the teal are too rowdy and move around a lot.  Flapping and splashing about. 
The upside for the shoveler is that the teal are a great intruder alarm since they are so keyed up and wary.  The shoveler can relax, and wait for his teal partners to alert him of an issue.  He is the last to fly away every time. 
Again I am going to speak to the awesome colors of the shoveler.  I did not mess with the saturation or edit the colors of this photo.  That is just the very bright afternoon sun lighting up this usually overlooked and ignored bird. The northern shoveler has only been on the federal duck stamp one time.  1945-46 stamp.
