Taken on a recent visit to Hobart, Tasmania, Australia, in my son’s garden, one of the little creatures I miss
since moving to a warmer climate, the lovely soft, furry looking Bumblebee, with a massive load of pollen.

I love the endless photographic opportunities provided by world around me, from the abundance of nature in my own backyard to historic and scenic worldwide destinations.

  • Shane, I miss these guys as we don’t get them here. It was great to see quite a few in Hobart recently. Their docility makes it fairly easy to get nice and close. Thanks for your comments and for adding this shot to your favourites. Trish.
