POTW #549 covering period 13 May - 2 Jun 2019
Posted By: eva, 05-20-2019, 01:20 AM

Welcome to the 549th edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering 13 May-26 May 2019. Let's see what you have been shooting these past two weeks. 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.

Please:

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

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

And please invite other Pentaxians to join us.

Some rules:
1) No theme, just post your favorite pix
2) Six or fewer images per person per thread to prevent thread bloat
3) Any Pentax, Ricoh or Samsung camera, film or digital

The current host will invite a new host via Private Message (PM), but if you are interested and willing to host POTW, please send me a PM, before I contact others.

If possible, the new thread will be linked to the previous one. If the thread doesn't start, please contact the host, via PM. Here are the records of recent POTW thread hosts: 390-406 smf, 407-408ramseybuckeye, 409-411 stubyles, 412-423 SD_Bob, 424-427 dave kitson 428-451 smf 452, 453, 454 StephenHampshire 455 Aslyfox, 456 StepehenHampshire, 457-466 noelcmn, 467 Aslyfox, 469-470 aaacb 471 Madmathmind, 472 Madmathmind, 473 Eva, 474 rjbrett, 475 Aslyfox, 476 - 485 noelcmn, 486 - 488 rjbrett, 489 clackers, 490 - 498 rjbrett, 499 StephenHampshire 500 smf, 501 StephenHampshire, 502-505 Eva, 506-525 Vaskebjorn, 526-538 noelcmn, 539-545 aaacb

Worked in the yard yesterday and found a number of photogenic subjects.

#1 is a very common, rather small moth. I haven't been able to identify it. -- Update: It's a type of planthopper, which I guess isn't a moth at all...

#2 is new to me. There were lots of them on a palm tree and at first I thought they were bees (which also love the palm when it's flowering). -- Update: Flower Chafer (Euselates ornata, Cetoniinae, Scarabaeidae), I think

#3: Not sure. Some kind of cerambycidae? -- Update: Longhorn Beetle (Tribe Callichromatini); Chelidonium Argentatum

#4: Not a clue. This looked like a small bundle of leaves hanging from the ceiling outside my bedroom on Saturday night, but by Sunday morning it was crawling across the terrace. -- Update: A bagworm moth, psychidae family. From Wikipedia: The caterpillar larvae of the Psychidae construct casesout of silk and environmental materials such as sand, soil, lichen, or plantmaterials. These cases are attached to rocks, trees or fences while resting orduring their pupa stage, but are otherwise mobile.

All of these were taken with my K-1 II and DA 35 F2.8 Ltd.

However did I enter into the fray here .
Fantastic Insect images, Tim. And the same to be said for Eva's opening salvo. Particularly like the last two Eva, a common sight around here too. This outside of the time frame, but to illustrate


No Insects this time round, as the Winter approaches.- A visit to Emmerentia Dam at Johannesburg Botanical Gardens.




And the Shelter/Care Centre where I work has an abundance of Hibiscus


And practised some Macro stuff


OK, one insect after all,one that will probably be around throughout winter

The animals were photographed through the glass of a sliding door with an smc Pentax-F 1:4.5-5.6 100-300mm on a handheld Pentax K-S2.

The tulip images were captured with an smc Pentax-M Macro 1:4 100mm on the Pentax K-S2. Each is a single image — not focus stacked.

Comments and criticisms are most welcome — by PM if you would rather not comment in the thread.

Best wishes!

Thanks! GR photos should resume, today's commute seemed productive looking at the back screen. That little camera is quickly replacing my da 21 and film gear...
