The rice fields are on display on the main picture are not far from being harvested; people do not wait until the crop gets fully ripe; the rice will dry later as bundles at the village out of reach of birds and other pests.
On picture 2 the rice bundles are ready to be tied up but they dry in the sun before and are artistically (and for efficiency purposes) laid out. The bundles here on picture 3 are in a more ripe stage.
They are then tied and carried to the village (picture 4), on poles which will directly be hung up at the back of the houses.
With fine weather the bundles are opened and laid out for further during (Picture 5).
