It seems like quite a huge job to make these large round bales of hay. (See baler image below…..I’ve always wondered how they do that!) This is a field in Dunnellon, Florida, U.S.A. in October.

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    Terrific capture, Dot! Back when I lived on a farm, all the bales were rectangular!

  • Thank you, Monnie. Nowadays you mostly see these very large and heavy rolls.
