Welcome to the 590th edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering period 15 March - 29 March 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 2 weeks.

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.

Well, I think COVID-19 is having a big effect on many of us. I didn't leave my neighborhood this weekend, but I took a walk yesterday to a nearby park and saw lots of birds. It was a gorgeous day and I got to exercise my recently-repaired DA*300. It still back-focuses but at least it focuses!

Let's see what you've got!

Crested Mynas - Lots of them here:

Red-whiskered bulbul. My favorite birds here in Hong Kong--they're gorgeous and abundant:

I've only seen these guys a few times and I assume they're transients:

Chinese bulbul:

Another red-whiskered bulbul. I can't get enough of them:

Thanks for hosting again nosliwmit, being an avid birder, I love those bird shots, and then Eva comes along to add to my delight. Plenty to cheer me while I am in lockdown, along with my fellow South Africans. Here's a contribution from me.

I've had two opportunities to try an capture this hummingbird Hawk Moth, difficult as it does not settle on any flower, but hovers while it eats from the flowers.

We've had lots of rain, this was in the yard when I returned one afternoon.

This falls just inside the time frame

Hopefully I'll get plenty of this during the 21 day lockdown. From the yard.

The annual Cosmos season has arrived, in even greater splendor than last year. Hopefully they will still be around if/when the lockdown ends.

Stay well ye all!

Spring hikes in the desert have been my remedy for dealing with the social distancing. Hope everyone is staying safe!
