Illustration for article titled The Best Nature Photo of the Year

The results of National Geographic's yearly photography contest are always a joyful visual experience. The 2011 winner is a worthy one. A particularly striking and beautiful image of a weird event: a dragonfly "showering" in Indonesia's Riau Island.
