Into His Work by William Brennan

Bumble bees will travel pretty far from their colony to collect nectar and pollen. They work tirelessly all day. This guy was really digging into this newly bloomed thistle. He was there for quite a long time and almost disappeared into it at one point. I took this n my front yard in Rockaway, NJ USA. I used my Nikon D3100 and the 85mm macro lens.

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! =)

    Another great macro, Bill! It transitions so well from a sharp focus into a beautiful blur. Perfect DOF! The colors are just awesome and balance each other very well.

  • Thanks Briar. It’s much appreciated. =)
