The World Sports Photography Awards has published the results of its third annual contest. And just like last year, the winning image captures the perfect moment that shows us a lot more than a sports game.
Sports photographer David Gray took the shot at the 2021 Australian Open. The stunning photo captures a moment of tennis player Naomi Osaka saving a butterfly that had landed on her skirt. With perfect timing, composition, and story, it’s no wonder that David’s image was selected as the best of the best.
