10. Lambing / Mayfly On the Dorset hills, the shepherd has set up a maternity ward for two thousand ewes. In the chalk stream, the elegant lace-winged fly is hatching by the million to live its life of only forty-eight hours. The trout are feasting. 11. Mole Catcher / High School Horse The skilful old man has been summoned because the moles have invaded the pasture. Silent and alone, he manipulates his traps. The once noble art of Haute Ecole produces the modern dressage horse. 12.
