This Month's National Geographic Submission

Every 15th of the Month or so I try and upload an image with the hopes of someday getting published into the highly recognized National Geographic Magazine...  I have yet to succeed, but the the competition there is fierce and number of submission a month is staggering I am sure!
In order to get selected your images need to be just a bit out of the ordinary to say the least...  Shock and awe is one way to get right in!!  An online friend got in with his image of a Great Blue Heron eating baby ducks!!  That's what these editors are looking for, and in turn their membership!  While I have never shot anything quite that intense, I try the best I can for different!
My choice for submission this month, comes from a recent outing this past summer on the river, where I noticed a Dragonfly nymph on a lily pad that was just starting to emerge into an adult Dragonfly!  I managed to get the boat around to the good side of the light and got this shot!  Hopefully this month it catches the eye's of an editor at NGM!!  One thing is for certain, that if you don't try, you can NEVER succeed!
