Scenes from the Jeep


A couple of nights ago we took the Jeep out for a early evening ride.  Tiny roads and suspect bridges make for some beautiful scenery.  


Corn 
I know, a daily scene for some of you.  
Much more corn being grown this year than soybeans.  



This old tractor seems to be a permanent lawn ornament.  



We rescued this fellow from the middle of the road.  Placed on a patch of grass, he went slowly on his way.  


Speaking of the middle of the road, this rabbit hopped right out in front of the Jeep and decided to take a rest.  After a couple of minutes, we shooed him on his way, too.  



Everyone comes out right before the sun goes down.  



At one point two fawns crossed the road in front of us.   Following their mother, they couldn't decided if they should continue across, or go back where they came from.  Each had their own idea and crashed right into each other.  

I was so in awe of seeing them, I forgot to take a picture.

  1. Evening is a perfect time of day to take photos..the bunny is too funny. Maybe he was just scared and froze up!

  7. Sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction. I drive a Jeep, I photographed corn, found a turtle crawling up under the deck and took pics a well, I saw a bunny in the road (I did NOT get a pic)...but my hubby saw the deer (a mommy and her fawn) but I didn't...all in one week! :)

  10. How nice of you to stop and move that turtle to safety.. and then to shoo the bunny off the road to safety.. you are a true angel. When we drove from Lake of the Ozarks back to Oregon I cannot tell you how many cornfields we went zooming past. You are blessed to live in the heartland. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  28. Beautiful. I love dusk. A perfect time and beautiful light. I miss my Jeep. It's been in the shop for ages. I think the local small village mechanic keeps pushing it to the back of the line.i especially enjoyed the turtle pic.

  30. The turtles we run across in Florida are gopher tortoises, MUCH bigger than that guy. Did you know that if you move a turtle, you are supposed to place them in the direction they were going? Don't know why, but I do know that that is the rule.

  31. I make my husband stop when I see a box turtle in the road so I can quickly finish his journey. They are so cute.

  32. What a nice posting!
    Turtles, well I have never seen any here in Norway.
    I guess there must be someone who have a turtle....
    I have to search for it:)
