Photographer's Note

On my fishing trip, I accidently caught a giant freshwater prawn (scientific name:Macrobrachium rosenbergii) in a jungle stream using a fish net. This is a young prawn about 18cm long.

In order to take this photo, I let it struggled for a while in the net. When it was tired, I quickly placed it on the shallow part of the stream. I took this shot as soon as I found the right angle to press my button. Minutes later, it swam away.

I really like this shot. Hope you guys like it too.
