Maui, Hawaii Looking into the lily was like looking into another world — a world only a bee could see. There is something about capturing a thing so intricate and small, and enlarging it to something so grand. It’s the power of photography. Always-changing Hawai’ian water lily colors are really mesmerizing. The powerful purple and delicate yellow combine to make this flower a masterpiece. I used a special macro lens to capture the intricate details and set the aperture at f/11 to throw the background flowers out of focus. All the elements combined to showcase the flower’s beauty. A world within a world.
