I saw these water lilies in Capitol Lake. I had a 50mm lens on the camera and it just was too far away for a good quality image. So I came back later in the day … and found that they had closed up for the night.
So, the next day I went back with my 300mm lens and got this shot. It was worth the trip.
Camera: Nikon D850 Lens: Nikon 300mm f/4.0 ISO 200 1/500sec f/11
