PRAIRIE DU SAC, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin’s new endangered species license plate features art from a Minnesota photographer.

State natural resources and transportation officials unveiled the license plate Wednesday which shows a photo of a bald eagle swooping down on the Mississippi River. The photo was taken by Troy Hattemer, of Red Wing, Minnesota, and was selected from more than 2,000 submissions.

The DOT will start filling orders for the new plate Sept. 1. Besides the regular license renewal fee, the endangered species plate costs another $25 that goes to the Endangered Resources Fund.
