To capture this image, photographer Jayaprakash had to take more than 30 to 40 pictures in differnt frames and angles. According to Jayaprakash,"I decided to get into the river to get some unique angles and perspective," he said. "It was initially a bit scared so it hid behind the tree but I stood behind another tree. This image that won the award was taken when it was checking to see if I was still there." The winning photograph was taken in the Singapore Zoo.
