Welcome to the 591th edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering period 23 March - 5 April 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.

Thanks for hosting Eva, Like that B/W, nice bit of documentary shot. No stepping together for him hey! Looks terribly lonely.

Fresh from the SD Card-The Lockdown here means lots of work in the garden, and that means lots of Insects.

Lots of these harmless fellas around

The Strangest Grub

And this (probably newborn) Gecko that I was able to coax onto my hand - Note the dirt on the thumb-just in case you don't believe me when I say I worked in the garden today

All of these shot with the K-30, Sigma 28-80mm ASpherical Macro lens, coupled with the Raynox 250

Thanks for getting us started Eva!

Noel - great bugs this week!

Not much from me this week. Spent some time working in the yard and went for a walk on Sunday:

This water-logged spider almost didn't survive my bucket and sponge. Spotted him at the last minute and ran for the camera:
