Ryo Taira lifts a porpoise out of a flooded rice field after it was swept by a tsunami following an earthquake in Sendai, in this picture taken by Asahi Shimbun on March 22, 2011. Taira found the porpoise struggling in the shallow seawater on Tuesday and after failing to net it, waded in to the field, which had yet to be sown with rice, to cradle the 1.2-metre (four foot) animal in his arms. Picture taken March 22, 2011.
