Thanks very much. For some reason, I like shooting with this combo. I have a KP, but with this lens, I like results better from the K-5IIs. Thank you for the compliments.

A very nice series Mike. The images are all sharp with good details and colors. I have quite a few skippers in my backyard right now. They are cool looking little fellows with that jet fighter wing configuration.

Thanks, Todd. I guess that wing configuration gives them speed and maneuverability.
