Five Red Poll bullocks graze on Midsummer Common. One is intent on eating the flowers on a woman’s garden wall. The woman, intent on saving her flowers, swats at the bullock with a flyswatter. The bullock backs off and there’s a staring match. The woman loses, blinks first when she starts laughing, but the startled bullock trots off.
