    A boy chases after a drone filming the Chaccu festival. This festival is held before shearing the vicuñas for their valuable wool. During the festival, community members chase and corral the vicuñas. Then, a few vicuñas are selected for a ceremony. This took place in Picotani, a community at 4800 meters of altitude in Puno, Peru. The trip was special for me because I could witness a celebration of life in one of the most remote and forbidding regions of my country.

    There is so much joy in the boy's face — and I love it! What a beautiful moment. His happiness makes me happy, and I imagine him tirelessly running around, chasing the drone (which is probably making the drone operators smile as they watch him.) Also, fantastic framing to include the vicunas in the background, who are running away from the drone. Well done Jose.
