Drink wine--take pictures---drink wine
Lens: Pentax 18-250 Camera: K20d Photo Location: Boxford Ma ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/125s Aperture: F6.7

I was very much suprised at the imagery that the Pentax 18-250 lens is capable of at close distances--1-2ft.The lens doesn't have macro capability and I was very pleased with its results.This is my first "shooting" of a dragonfly and he stayed on the branch for a good 10 minutes and let me capture him.Maybe the wine vapors put him in a tranquil disposistion.--charliezap

I just hope that the wine drinking and the photo shooting don't become an integral habit--charliezap

Coming from you I'll certainly take that as a compliment since it's not dripping with sarcasm and nastiness.---I think he likes me.--charliezap
