Nat Geo photography contest attracts the best there is to offer in the world of photography. Personally i i think that its much more than the final result. Imaging what the photographer had to go thru to get that one photo. The thought process when taking it and the amount of time one would have spent to get that winning photo!

Grand Prize Winner and Nature Winner - SPLASHING: This photo was taken when I was taking photos of other insects, as I normally did during macro photo hunting. I wasn’t actually aware of this dragonfly since I was occupied with other objects. When I was about to take a picture of it, it suddenly rained, but the lighting was just superb. I decided to take the shot regardless of the rain. The result caused me to be overjoyed, and I hope it pleases viewers. Batam, Riau Islands, Indonesia (Photo and caption by Shikhei Goh)
