White aster and a little visiting bee. by 

Aster is a genus of flowering plants in the family Asteraceae. The genus once contained nearly 600 species in Eurasia and North America, but after morphologic and molecular research on the genus during the 1990s, it was decided that the North American species are better treated in a series of other related genera. After this split there are roughly 180 species within the genus, all but one being confined to Eurasia. The name Aster comes from the Ancient Greek word ἀστήρ (astér), meaning “star”, referring to the shape of the flower head. I didn’t expect to get a shot of this little bee, but that fine by me. :) I took this along the shore of Lake Telemark in Rockaway, NJ. I used a Nikon Coolpix L110 digital camera.

I’ve always appreciated nature, but I didn’t show interest in photography until digital started to come into it’s own. I had many cheap cameras over the years, but when I got the Nikon D3100 for my birthday last year, I really started to realize what photography was all about. I’ve had such a blast learning on the go over the past 10 months. I’ve gotten shots that I could have only dreamed of a year ago. I hope you all enjoy my photos, and by all means, BUY SOMETHING! =)

    Lovely picture! I love these flowers, and I am anxiously awaiting their blooms where I am. I have these growing along a fenceline, and they produce some fairly obtrusive foliage. BUT, the late season blooms are so worth it. Plus, they really draw in the bees! Great macro work, William!

  • Thanks again my friend. They make for very attractive pictures. They are everywhere here in New Jersey.
