The Cornfield - Jungle for a Summer

Spectacular images captivate the observer in a seldom observed living space at the front door. How do the numerous filed inhabitants organise things between themselves after occupying a bare field? Types such as e.g. field hamster, whose name suggest that they have lived on our filed since we started practicing agriculture. Who still knows them today? On this stage of life created by man many exciting and amusing dramas are played out.
