Lots of variety! Looks like you had some fun.
How would you rate your Computar? Is it all manual?

The flowers are gorgeous, but #2588 is particularly striking. What type of flower is that?

Love the flowers. The colors really pop. The orchid is striking.

The Computar has it's own thread...

https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-slr-lens-discussion/215564-computa...-thoughts.html

Someone stumbled onto the fact that it was an M42 lens on a M4/3 forum and started spreading the word. Once the news that the seller had reduced the price to $8 hit this forum he quickly sold out. It is in fact a fully manual lens, there is no stop down pin and no A/M switch. It's hard to be objective about it because it only cost me $17 after tax and shipping.

I have no idea what that flower is...I didn't look for a tag.

I've always liked the colors from the Sigma macro. Some people think they are cooler than a similar Pentax but I PP everything anyway...
