Welcome to Picture of the Week (POTW) for the period 20 December - 3 January 2018. Itís my pleasure to host this week and you are invited to contribute to this wonderful diverse thread.

POTW is a great spot to show off six or fewer shots you take or are editing within the thread's date range. In other words, you can post your shots from this week AND last week.

To post your great photos, just hit reply and attach away

feel free to start immediately, if not sooner

Please:

ē consider including in your post any special circumstances or tips on technique or equipment which might be interesting to others.

ē identify your camera and lens if that information is easily available to you.

And please invite other Pentaxians to join us.

Well folks, this will probably be the last time I'll host POTW for a while, and if you are interested and willing to host POTW, please send me a PM, before I contact others to host POTW.





Watched this wasp for a long time, as it looked for its nest, completely covered with small stones, which it moved painstakingly, and suddenly a hole appeared, through which it soon disappeared.








Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, and here's wishing you all a splendid 2018, full of love and blessing!

A dragonfly, a butterfly, and a wasp. The dragonfly was a gift - I'd received a KAX Teleplus 2x converter in the mail and went out to test it on birds over the road with a Takumar (Bayonet) 135mm f2.8, no luck with the birds but as I turned to go back inside the dragonfly was just a bit over a metre away. I used f5.6 on the 135mm as I had read teleconverters are best used in the more optimal middle ranges of the lens settings. The butterfly was taken using the Industar 61 50mm with an 11mm extension tube, probably at f8 or 11. Don't be fooled by the chunky looking wings of the wasp - they zap around at a frantic pace, and quite erratically. When we first moved into this house 15 years ago there were dozens nesting and flying out from holes in the uncultivated clay out the front, but I don't see so many now. This was also taken using the Takumar bayonet and teleconverter.

Happy new year to all!

Noel, thanks very much for hosting this thread and previous threads.

Today marked the first time I have seen two red squirrels together on our deck rail. (Image was captured with handheld K-S2 and smc Pentax-F 1:4.5-5/6 100-300mm and cross-posted from the Got Squirrel Shots? thread.)
