This girl is picking a mango with a long stick with a hook at the end on March 6, 2010 in Mali. Mango season is the tastiest of all the Malian seasonal changes. The girl's younger brother will stand underneath the branch once she hooks the stem, in order to catch the falling fruit. These are public mango trees right next to the village marketplace. The girl in the background is beginning to lift her own pole (several sticks tied together) to knock down another mango.
