Photos that Raise Questions

This first photo was taken at the landfill site where you pull up to drop garbage off in a big metal container. Think about the question this raises--why would somebody throw out birth control pills?

The second photo is cows cooling off in the Nith River. It makes me wonder why some of the cows aren't in the water. Do they not like to get their feet wet? Or had they been in the water so long they got chilly and just got out to get warmed up before I came along? I like the reflections in the water of the cow, trees, and clouds.

The third photo shows work part way finished. The crop has been cut and left to dry. I like how the line of trees divide the fields and the incredibly straight rows. And I also like that taking this photo made me look up something I didn't know about. I didn't know before that hay, according to, means "grass, clover, alfalfa, etc., cut and dried for use as forage." Before today I thought that hay was the name of a particular crop. I also didn't know that depending on what kind of animals you're feeding, you'd plant different crops for hay. Or that the time of day you cut the crops determines the amount of sugar in it.
