公園を歩いていたら、「キーッ」と声がして、カワセミが枝に止まりました。カワセミは、こういう見通しのきく場所の先端などが好きみたいです。ちょっと嬉しくなって、撮ってみました。しかも偶然、飛び立つ直前の瞬間が撮れました。普段、私は鳥を撮る事が少ないので、連写機能はあまり使ったこともなく、カメラ自体の能力も高速撮影に適したものではなかったので、1回シャッターを切っただけで、この写真が撮れたのは結構嬉しかったです。
I was walking in the park. The common kingfisher barked, and perched in the branch , at that time. The common kingfisher likes place where the prospect is effective. I became glad, and took the common kingfisher’s photograph. As for the photograph, the moment when it flew away by chance was taken. As for me, it is few to take the bird usually. I had not used the function of consecutive taking a picture, and it was not the thing which ability of camera in itself was suitable for to photograph a moment. However, I was glad because I pressed the shutter once, and this photograph came out.

でも良く見ると、この枝、自然なようでいて、不自然です…。カワセミの好みそうなところに、カワセミの好みそうな角度で、しかも写真を撮りやすい位置に、枝先を切って加工した枝が張り出している。しかも、全く葉っぱが無く視界を遮るものがない。
However, when this photograph is seen well, the branch is unnatural. The branch that cuts in the position in which the photograph is taken easily the branch ahead and processed it projects to the place where the common kingfisher seems to like it at the angle that the common kingfisher seems to like. The leaf is completely, and moreover, it is not, and there is no something that cuts off the view.

どなたかの「努力」の痕なのでしょう。私にはこの「努力」をどう感じていいのか、はっきりわかりません。「努力」のお陰で貴重な写真が残る場合もあります。「努力」のせいで、生き物が危険に晒されたりすることもあります。
It might be of someone’s “Effort”. It is not understood how I may evaluate this “Effort” to me. A valuable photograph might be taken thanks to “Effort”. The living thing might be jeopardized because of “Effort”.

ただ、動物の生活に大きな影響を与えるほどの、行き過ぎた「努力」は嫌いです。この「努力」により、カワセミはお気に入りの場所をひとつ手に入れ、私も、1枚きれいな写真が撮れました。正直、かなり微妙で複雑な気持ちです。
However, I hate “Effort” as it has a big influence on the life of the animal. By this “Effort”,the common kingfisher was able to obtain a favorite one place and I also take one beautiful photograph. I am slightly complex feelings…
