The stalks were brown and dry and the kernels hard. Perfect conditions for harvest. Most of the husks were dry and curling, exposing parts of the ears within. I looked at a bunch of ears, I photographed a few, and I thought this one best represented the harvest.

@Devi: Even in my Grandpa's day (the 1950's) there were different varieties of corn for different purposes (and even multiple strains for each) sweet corn to boil and eat at the dinner table; popcorn that had a tough crust plus high moisture to "pop" when heated; and field (or feed) corn for grinding into meal for human or animal consumption.

A magnificent close up of the ear of corn. Beautiful color and detail. They are busy harvesting the fields here. 5*

This is an excellent close-up of the old corn seeds. It’s interesting how nature turns the green corn into what was there in the fall.
