Description: Lavender colored lilies on a pond in the Mara.

Story from behind the lens: I know everyone comes to see lions and leopards and elephants, but sometimes you have to stop and shoot the other gifts of the Mara. These beautiful lavender water lilies were a challenge to shoot. Plus, we were on our way to find a pride on lions that were moving through the area—just a quiet moment in the Mara.
