ミスターゴー – Mr. GHO


すでに一週間以上前の早朝のこと。
玄関付近のセキュリティーカメラが捕えたビデオに騒然。
アメリカワシミミズクが中庭に舞い降りた!
It happened one early morning more than a week ago.
The security camera by the front door captured a fantastic action.
A Great Horned Owl landed on a beam in the courtyard.


飛び起きてこっそり観察できる私の部屋の小さな窓からのぞいてみた。背の低い私にはカメラを持ち上げるだけで精一杯。
We jumped out from bed and peaked out through a tiny window in my room. The window is positioned so high that I had to raise my camera over my head without looking.


そうこうしていうるうちに、ゲストハウスの屋根の上に飛び移った。私たちも廊下に移動してパチリ。
While I was struggling to see the owl, he jumped on to the guest house roof. So we moved also. Now we could see him from the hallway window. From this window, we took a few decent shots like below.


「太陽はまだ昇りかけたばかり。でも、もう巣に帰る時間ですよね。また、ぜひ来てくださいね!美味しそうなウサギがたくさんいますから。」
“The sun has just risen. I assume it is your bedtime and you must return to your nest. Please visit us again! We have many delicious looking rabbits around here.”

またの来訪を祈り、ミスターゴーと名付けました。
I named him “Mr. GHO” (pronounced “ɡō”) hoping to see him again.

以下、カメラが捕えたビデオです。よかったらご覧ください。4分近くいましたが、長いのでカットしました。面白いのは、窓から見える私たちの行動です。二人ともまだパジャマ姿で、バンちゃんは何もなかったように歩いているのに、私は慌てて走っている姿が写ってます。
The security camera’s video is attached below. He stayed there about 4 minutes, so I trimmed it to make it shorter. The funny thing is that you can see our activity through the window on the left. We were both in pajamas. Banchan was walking naturally, while I was running in a rush.
