Looking out

The green swathe has been stripped, the yellow areas still to be done. The heads are so full that patches have lodged (fallen flat), but modern headers can still strip the grain without damaging the machine.
That is a rather impressive piece of land with a great harvest. Where would the farmers be without all this modern equipment ;-)

@ludwigsdiana Good question Diana, complicated subject, but they'd not be in a good place.

A sea of rice!

A great action capture - through a window?

Nice to see a green yields!

Those machines fascinate me with the way they can pull off the grain without damaging the machinery or the whole plant. What a great view!

@robz Yep, great to see it all this year when there's nothing else around.

@gilbertwood Yep, I was sitting in the cabin of the header.

@haskar Yes, it was great to see.

@olivetreeann They're very 'clever' these days, huge advances even in the past 30 or 40 years. Electronics and gps are the key factors.

Great view from up there. Does Leroy drive the header?

Ignore that question - I just looked at another image with Laurie driving.

@dide Not this one, but he's perfectly capable of doing so.
