Posted By: aaacb, 02-02-2020, 02:54 PM

Welcome to the 585th edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering period 27 January - 9 February 2020. 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.


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.

Thanks for hosting again aaacb. Super opening shots as usual, like No 3 best! Great story there! A contribution from me.

These veined White winged butterflies have been migrating north east, apparently headed for Madagascar. Thousands of them all over Johannesburg, even in the city centre.

The children at the orphanage where I also work are always ready for a photo shoot

This fellow was having a snooze, so I was able to get up real close

Yellow Billed Egret in golden light

What photographers will do to get that shot

This afternoon's commute home
