Pulling a grain drill around this field in ever-smaller rounds, the farmer had to leave unsown gaps at each corner. Upon reaching the center of the field, he then 'drilled out' the four corners, producing the pattern revealed in this photograph taken several weeks later, when the wheat is 4-6 inches tall. Along US 36 near Prairie View, in Phillips County, Kansas. October 30, 2005.
