Wildlife Photographer Of The Year 2017 Finalists


Arctic treasure by Sergey Gorshkov (Russia). An arctic fox carries its egg trophy from a raid on a snow goose nest and heads for a suitable burial spot. Finalist 2017, Animal Portraits. (Photo by Sergey Gorshkov/2017 Wildlife Photographer of the Year)


Swim gym by Laurent Ballesta (France). A mother introduces her pup to the icy water in east Antarctica in early spring. The pair slide effortlessly between the sheets of the frozen water. Finalist 2017, Behaviour: Mammals. (Photo by Laurent Ballesta/2017 Wildlife Photographer of the Year)


Romance among the angels by Andrey Narchuk (Russia). Sea angels are molluscs related to slugs and snails, with wing-like lobes used as swimming paddles. They are both male and female and here they prepare to insert their copulatory organs into each other to transfer sperm in synchrony. Finalist 2017, Behaviour: Invertebrates. (Photo by Andrey Narchuk/2017 Wildlife Photographer of the Year)


Winter pause by Mats Andersson (Sweden). On a cold February morning, the red squirrel encapsulates the spirit of winter as it closes its eyes for a moment, paws together, fur fluffed, then resumes its search for food. Finalist 2017, Black and White. (Photo by Mats Andersson/2017 Wildlife Photographer of the Year)


The insiders by Qing Lin (China). Each anemone fish has an extra pair of eyes inside its mouth – those of a parasitic isopod which enters as a larva via the fish’s gills, moves to its mouth and attaches its legs to the base of the tongue. Finalist 2017, Under Water. (Photo by Qing Lin/2017 Wildlife Photographer of the Year)


Saved but caged by Steve Winter (US). The back leg of this Sumatran tiger cub was so badly mangled by a snare it had to be amputated. He was trapped for four days before being discovered in a rainforest on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. It is likely the snare was set by oil-palm plantation workers. Finalist 2017, The Wildlife Photojournalist Award: Single Image. (Photo by Steve Winter/2017 Wildlife Photographer of the Year)


Bold eagle by Klaus Nigge (Germany). After several days of constant rain, the bald eagle was soaked to the skin. Full concentration on the eagle’s expression created an intimate portrait, enhanced by the overcast light of the rainy day. Finalist 2017, Animal Portraits. (Photo by Klaus Nigge/2017 Wildlife Photographer of the Year)


Sewage surfer by Justin Hofman (US). This tiny estuary seahorse “almost hopped” from one bit of bouncing natural debris to the next, bobbing around on a reef near Sumbawa Island, Indonesia. As a brisk surface wind picked up, the seahorse took advantage of something that offered a stable raft: a waterlogged plastic cottonbud. Finalist 2017, The Wildlife Photojournalist Award: Single Image. (Photo by Justin Hofman/2017 Wildlife Photographer of the Year)


Saguaro twist by Jack Dykinga (US). These emblematic saguaro cacti in Arizona’s Sonoran Desert National Monument tower at more than 12 metres. The roots weave a maze just below the surface, radiating as far as the plant is tall, to absorb precious rainfall. The saturated limbs are vulnerable to hard frost – their flesh may freeze and crack, while the mighty arms twist down under their loads. Finalist 2017, Plants and Fungi. (Photo by Jack Dykinga/2017 Wildlife Photographer of the Year)


Bear hug by Ashleigh Scully (US). After fishing for clams at low tide, a mother brown bear leads her spring cubs back across the beach to the nearby meadow. But one young cub wants to stay and play. Finalist 2017, Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year, 11-14 Years. (Photo by Ashleigh Scully/2017 Wildlife Photographer of the Year)


Glimpse of a lynx by Laura Albiac Vilas (Spain). Laura travelled to the Sierra de Andújar natural park in Spain in search of the lynx and struck lucky on her second day – a pair were relaxing not far from the road. Finalist 2017, Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year, 11-14 Years. (Photo by Laura Albiac Vilas/2017 Wildlife Photographer of the Year)


The power of the matriarch by David Lloyd (New Zealand/UK). In Kenya’s Maasai Mara national reserve, a herd of elephants trekked to their evening waterhole. The mellow light from the fast-setting sun emphasised every wrinkle and hair. The female leading the herd looked straight at the photographer, her eye a glowing amber dot in the heavy folds of skin. Her gaze was full of respect and intelligence. Finalist 2017, Animal Portraits. (Photo by David Lloyd/2017 Wildlife Photographer of the Year)


Resplendent delivery by Tyohar Kastiel (Israel). Tyohar watched the pair of resplendent quetzals for more than a week as they delivered fruits to their two chicks. Resplendent quetzals usually nest in thicker forest, but this pair had picked a tree in a partly logged area in the Costa Rican cloud forest of San Gerardo de Dota. The additional light made it easier for Tyohar to catch the iridescent colour of the male’s dazzling emerald and crimson body plumage and tail streamers. Finalist 2017, Behaviour: Birds.

最後に処刑された囚人なのか!?ちょっと名前を呼んでみたらうっかり幽霊が登場した件(イギリス)

ghost1_e


 イギリス・コーンウォールにあるボドミン刑務所(Bodmin Jail)で幽霊の姿をくっきりと捕えた動画が撮影されたとして話題になっている。

 ゴーストハンターのトニー・ファーガソンさんが撮影したもので、絞首刑に処された最後の囚人じゃないこれ!?って話なんだ。

 件の動画を見ると確かに何かがスーッ・・・と廊下を横切るんだけども。
 しかも拡大したらしっかり男性の顔だったりするみたいなんだけども。

 これはもしかして本当の本当にゴーストをハントしちゃったのか!? 続きを読む

宇宙人隠蔽、食人族、エジプトの呪い、幽霊…ロンドンの地下に存在すると言われている謎の空間に関する都市伝説

iStock-696296320_e


 イングランド、ロンドンの地下にはグレーターロンドンやエセックス、ハートフォードシャー、バッキンガムシャーなどの都市を繋ぐ巨大な鉄道網がある。

 ここは世界最古の地下鉄として知られており、最初の区間はメトロポリタン鉄道により1863年1月10日に開業した。現在でもロンドン地下鉄には268の停車駅が存在し、総延長距離は400キロメートルに及ぶ。

 更に2007年には初めて開通してから10億人を乗車した地下鉄としてその歴史の長さを世界に示した。

 あまりにも長い歴史がある故に、「本当にこの巨大な地下空間は地下鉄だけのものなのか?」と疑問を持つ人が多く、様々な都市伝説が存在するのだ。
