Taking a ride down to the pasture

Ben came over this afternoon after we were home from church and getting groceries at the Hy-Vee grocery store.
I asked him if he wanted to drive the John Deere lawn tractor down to the pasture to the creek.. He said "Alright". his favorite saying right now. He saw my camera and wanted to take it along.. I told him "sure"..
So these are the pictures that Ben took today with my camera.. I thought for a 4 year old he really did a great job.
This is one of my blue bird houses that the red-winged blackbirds sit on top and won't let the bluebirds nest.

I thought this was really nice. Shows all the colors of fall. even thou the grass is still green. We haven't had a hard frost yet.

He got off the lawn tractor to take this one.. He took 5 and only 1 was a clear picture of this maple tree just beginning to grow...

Ben thought this was cool. Neighbor boy, Connor built the primitive bridge across the small creek. There is a small building that he built on the other side of the pasture .

Good ole milk weed exploding it's seed to fly like dancing ballerina's across the pasture.
Ben loves to get ahold of the seed pods and pull the seeds out and let them fly into the air..
It was a beautiful day again and just perfect for taking a ride down to the pasture and taking pictures . We had a great time~!
Have a great Monday everyone.. ta ta for now... from Iowa

Wow Ben really has an eye for photography. He doesn't think about it - he just clicks and shoots. Us adults would probably do better if we thought like a 4 year old. Goooooood JOB Ben!
