It's two more of those.


  1. Karen Too says:

    Anteater on the left, and horse on the right? More cabooses?

  2. Gregg South Africa says:

    Your caption made me laugh!

    Really enjoying your journey from across the world – you have a great eye for a photograph.

  3. scott mac says:

    Thought to be extinct, these apparently docile,mating 19th century threshers may attack if cornered. Caught in the wild by Wild Thinkdom photographer Matt Greene, these are a fine example of the Industrial Revelotion

    I believe these are belt driven grain threshers, used in farm harvesting until the evolution of the modern day combine in the mid 20th century

  4. Dave Boush says:

    I love those!

  5. Michael in Atlanta says:

    Shoot. For a minute I got all excited. But I was lookin’ for a blue one.

  6. Will says:

    They are exhibiting predatory behavior by the way that they are hiding behind those signs and crouched down ready to ambush their prey.

  7. Craig Anderson says:

    Yes, scott mac, those are belt-driven grain threshers. I saw one in operation a few years ago, at an antique farm festival, in southwestern Minnesota. A steam-powered tractor was powering it. Fine debris was flying everywhere as it threshed. It was quite a sight to see.

  8. Jon says:

    Keep up the photos, I like them. O, and keep on going because that is a big activity your doin’.

  9. Thomas says:

    Given the backdrop, my first thought was that Matt had overshot Oregon and ended up in some run-down area of the former Soviet Union. This looked almost like some shots I’ve seen from the Chernobyl area.
    Awesome shot, Matt. You astound me with your good eye.

    A magnetic field connected to the one corner cage keeps these prehistoric creatures at bay!
