363: Fisherman and heron
When Portuguese navigators entered Guanabara Bay on the first of January 1502, they were convinced that they had arrived at the mouth of an immense river, which they called the January River: Rio de Janeiro. Soon, it was realized that they had arrived in a giant bay: Guanabara Bay. This bay, however, is quite polluted; it is therefore not recommended to consume fish caught in the bay. However, it is not forbidden to catch the fish. This fisherman is trying not to lose his patience, while his heron neighbor shows great patience. He might plan to attack his human neighbor’s prey.
