Not to say the picture is bad, just well...

Seems he used a fisheye lens, judging from the curvature of the ground,
which means he must have been very close to the orang utan, maybe even a
metre or less.

Perhaps he put the camera on the ground looking upwards and then used a
remote control to activate the shutter?
And guessing more, perhaps he put some food next to the camera, to lure
the monkey down from the tree?

Replying to myself, in the article he writes this is a reflection in a
pond, camera pointed downwards. But it still looks like a very wide
angle shot, so the camera must have been very close to the monkey.

I thought it was most probably a fixed camera, fired remotely. I
wondered if it might even be from a GoPro. Still an extraordinarily
creative shot.

You didn't read it. The sky is actually reflection in calm water (he
says).

The Librarian is known for his violent reaction whenever he hears anyone
refer to him as a "monkey" (orang-utans are apes).

It? I don't think Dr. Worblehat would like that. Probably capable of
tearing your head off if you upset him.

For those of you sadly unaware of him:

Well, here there are more details:
https://www.imaging-resource.com/new...er-of-the-year

"Vijayan said, 'After spending few days in Borneo, I got this frame
stuck in my mind. To get this shot, I selected a tree that was in the
water so that I could get a good reflection of the sky and its leaves on
the tree. The water formed a mirror, making the image look upside-down.
Then I climbed up on the tree and waited for hours. This is a regular
path for the orangutans to use, so patience would surely pay off.'"

So he spent hours on a tree, waiting for this orang utan to pass by. I
guess that there was no guarantee that this monkey would come or that he
would get the shot.

Seems like photographers have a very high level of frustration tolerance
- willing to spend hours in an uncomfortable place, hoping to get a
unique shot.
