Day 138 - Not a flower, but a food

Here's a close-up of that green field seen from our back yard. The grain has formed on the tall green stalks and this field will probably be harvested soon as fodder for livestock. A fact that surprised me: wheat is the second most grown grain, after maize. Rice is in third place.

this is a beautifully taken picture, the depth of field, the wide variety of shades of green and the light - oh so pretty - a print it out and hang it kind of photo.
