The Bisenzio River, a tributary of the Arno River, flows through Prato. Yesterday, I noticed quite a few anglers out trying their luck. (Or just passing time, perhaps.)
This fellow caught a nice sized fish just a moment after he cast the lure into the water. He’ll be having lovely fresh fish for dinner, I’d say.
I also saw many nutria on the river bank and in the water, but they proved difficult to capture on the camera. Nutria are described as ‘a cross between a beaver and a New York sewer rat’! Happily, I found a video on YouTube that shows the river, these semi-aquatic rodents AND fish. I really didn’t even have to leave the apartment today.
PS This is blog post 1000, according to the WordPress counter. Happy whatever to the blog.
