In summer, I like to ride my bike in the evenings when it’s cooler and the lighting is golden which makes for beautiful photos.
Last night I took a ride down a country road and watched the farmer making hay bales. He was making the old fashioned square kind as opposed to the round Muffett style. Every now and then he had to stop and open up his special bale maker and move the spools around containing the wire binding twine.
I passed these two horses and of course I had to stop and say hello to them. These two looked so golden in the evening light. I noticed they were followed by a big flock of brownish-black birds and realized they must be cow birds. Now I know why they are called that. They don’t moo after all! They just like to follow horses and cows around because that’s where all the flies are.
This lovely boy noticed me taking his photo and even posed for me.
I took photos of these daisies in the evening sun, their golden faces upturned and smiling. I love daisies! Such a cheerful and happy flower that says carefree summertime.
Taking photos makes me really pay attention and look at things that I might have not noticed otherwise. Even after living out here in the country for 25 years, there is always something new for me to discover as no moment is ever the same. And I'm not the same either.
