Photo of the Day: The Grand-Prize Winner of National Geographic’s 2012 Photo Contest

National Geographic is announced the grand-prize winner of their 2012 photo submission contest. This picture, shot by Ashley Vincent, shows Busaba, a well cared for Indochinese Tigress whose home is at Khao Kheow Open Zoo, Thailand.

Which is why I took to observing her more carefully during my visits in the hope of capturing something of a behavioural shot. The opportunity finally presented itself while watching Busaba enjoying her private pool then shaking herself dry. In all humility I have to say that Mother Nature smiled favourably on me that day!
