A Pescadora

A Pescadora, the Fisherwoman, is Our Beautiful Neighbour (see that post below). This is a collection of the fisherwoman stalking and catching fish in the pond and river in the Praça Basílio Ceschin in Águas da Prata. Then she rests and also goes for a flight around town.

I was able to get very close to her for this photo.

She fishes in the pond most of the time.

She stands still and studies the waters intently.

She crouches for the kill.

She is often seen in this pose.

She walks around the pond searching for the best location.

Sometimes she even hunts in the river.

Apparently she cannot read! The sign says Fishing Prohibited". *SMILE*

It is a treat to see her catch a fish.

This fish was farely big and put up a struggle.

But it is no match for her skill.

After a fine meal she may retire to the tree tops.

Or, as can be seen here, she may take a leisurely flight around town.

She is a delight to watch and photograph no matter what she is doing.
