POTW #596 - Covering Period 4 May through 17 May
Posted By: nosliwmit, 05-10-2020, 03:10 PM

Welcome to the 596th edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering period 4 May through 17 May 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. Here are the records of recent POTW thread hosts: 390-406 smf, 407-408 ramseybuckeye, 409-411 stubyles, 412-423 SD_Bob, 424-427 dave kitson, 428-451 smf, 452-454 StephenHampshire, 455 Aslyfox, 456 StephenHampshire, 457-466 noelcmn, 467 Aslyfox, 469-470 aaacb, 471-472 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, 539-547 aaacb, 548-563 Eva, 564-571 noelcmn, 572-579 nosliwmit, 580-587 aaacb, 588 noelcmn, 589-590 nosliwmit, 591-593 Eva, 594-595 nosliwmit

I hope everyone's week is off to a good start.

I'm finally getting around to adding some photos to my thread-starter...

I thought this was a caterpillar but it looks like it's a hundred of them:

Not sure if this is a brown tree frog or a Hong Kong whipping frog...

I believe this is a russet percher dragonfly:

Thanks for hosting again Nosliwmit- love that russet dragon! Nice textures BigOak.
A Contribution from me.
This wasp landed on the mirror of our Church Bus, just as I walked passed, camera in hand too.

Mormon Church en route home one evening.

Sometimes I am pleasantly surprised at what can appear at the Orphanage where I also work- seeing that it is a about 80% concrete in the middle of a concrete jungle, with the remaining 20% garden with flowers and vegetable. This fellow somehow made it's way under the net (put up to prevent hail damage) and I was able to get a few shots of it.

My Teddy took over my Mexican hat

And having not gotten a Pic for the Daily In Challenge one day, when I got home I conjured something up, and this is the result-my glass paper weight ball, onto which I stuck Board pins (with Prestik) using my cellphone Torch light under the ball, with a space of about 2cm between the ball and the torch. As I said elsewhere, a bit too close looking to this silly Corona virus.

Thanks everyone for contributing to POTW #596! The winner for the week has to be Noel's Coronavirus! Hilarious!

Let's do it again sometime. I'll get another POTW going now.
