Nearing the end

Remember that field of corn we watched grow all summer? Here's what was left of it early Saturday evening:

That dark spot in the middle was a drowned-out area. You can see the combine above on the far right of the photo. (BTW, click on any photo to enlarge it.) Here it is closer, unloading corn into the catch cart:

And even a little closer yet:

I managed to get a little video footage of the process, although I was losing daylight fast, so it's kinda dark. The catch cart left to be emptied into a waiting truck, and at the end of the video is where the combine is heading across the field to cut around that area in the center.

There was only one field left to combine after that one, and hopefully that will get finished today and harvest will be complete for this year. Yay!

In case you noticed the flashing red light at the neighbor's... no, it was not an emergency vehicle, but only a yard light. It's just the way the camera handled the lights. If you watch closely, you can see that the tractor and combine lights flicker a bit of red, too, just not as noticeably.
