As it enters autumn of the year, farmers in Northeast China's Jilin province - one of the major rice-producing areas in China, celebrated the sixth Chinese farmers' harvest festival on Saturday, expecting a bumper harvest.

In a captivating fusion of agriculture and art, local paddy fields have been transformed into vibrant canvases. Fish, sika deer, pandas and many other animals are featured in these paintings, expressing the hope for a prosperous yield.
