A Tigress wins National Geographic Photo Contest 2012

Photographer Ashley Vincent of Chonburi, Thailand, took home this year’s top honor: a $10,000 prize and trip to National Geographic’s headquarters in Washington, D.C.
The winning photo shows a tigress named Busaba shaking herself dry at Khao Kheow Open Zoo in Thailand. Vincent, who has taken many photos of Busaba before, was looking for a new way to capture the tigress in her habitat when the opportunity presented itself. After going for a dip in her private pool, Busaba climbed out and began shaking the water off her fur coat.
