An assortment of pics from the Botannical Gardens on the Gold Coast. My first real chance to try out the K200D in the field.

Thank you all for the kind comments.

Keith, yes all were taken with the Sigma 70 - 300 APO on Macro. Used manual focus though as I didn't like it hunting all the time. It gave me better control.

Nobbsie; As for Depth of Field I thank the camera for that as it was just on Auto. I am still getting used to using it after owning a Fuji S9600.
Totally different animals on Manual.

Very nice photos Tony. My favorites were honey bee and double trouble.
Any chance to see these bigger?
