My crop duster was back this morning..... he is fertilizing the rice this time.... I know you're thinking "how can she tell the difference".... the other day he was MUCH closer to the ground... when they spray weed killer they are very careful not to spray anything but the field.... when fertilizing, they don't have to be so precise, so they can fly higher. Of course, when they do this, I don't get those "cool" close to the ground shots :(

Thanks to Oregon Curly for the challenge of our Saturday Shots.... same shot, same spot every Saturday for a year!!

    Wow...doesn't look like it needs fertilizer!! Really green. Your lawn looks great, too; love that gorgeous blue sky.

    Very nice yard that you have there and you get to see the crop dusters at work. They are fun to watch. You supplied some interesting info on how to tell what field a crop duster may be dusting.

    Wonderful shot! Love the cropdusters, and this one really makes this shot extra special. I don't suppose you've offered him a tip to 'over spray' the fertilizer on your place?? That great, blue sky really sets the plane off well.

    You know Curly...... we have our garden just on the other side of the shop and right after they planted that rice, he sprayed fertilizer.... and yes, he "over-sprayed" just a little and added it to the garden :)

    I'm impressed, Maurie!! You've got these crop dusters so well trained, they're now willing to fly right over your property!! Neatto!!

    Nice capture, thanks for the lesson, I learned a little more from you, I don't know that I would recognize which level the plane should be to do their different activities because we don't have them around here, but it is interesting to know and observe in the future thank you.
