“The combination of earth, sky and light in this location is simply magical”, wrote Mark Franko about his submission taken in Arizona’s Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park. “It is no wonder why the Native Americans hold this place sacred”. The 57-year-old from Hughesville, Md., was part of a small group that was hosted by a resident Navajo family. Submit to the annual contest here.

 今年2月中旬のこと、アメリカ・ウィスコンシン州の "Humane Animal Welfare Society of Waukesha" で働くマーク・ヘスさんのところに、動転した運転手から電話がかかってきた。トラックの前面に鳥が引っかかっている、というのである。


 もちろん、トラックに引っかかってしまったこと自体は幸運とはいえない。だが、そのタカ科のアカオノスリ(red-tailed hawk)は、フロントグリルに挟まった状態で州間高速道路を数十キロメートルも運ばれていたのである。
