Posted By: nosliwmit, 05-18-2020, 04:46 PM

Welcome to the 597th edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering period 11 May through 24 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.

Just critters for me this week. All of these were taken with my K-1 mkII, D-FA 100mm macro and my AF080C ring flash.

A wacky-looking Endotricha (a genus of "snout moth"). I tried my hand at a focus stack here because the little guy stayed still enough to let me try it (a little tail movement though):

A leaf hopper nymph. I find these things endlessly fascinating because what these pure white things turn into looks like a nondescript brown moth. They jump like they're spring-loaded:

A pea blue butterfly (I think):

A clear-wing tiger moth.

And a bee:

And also captured some bee images.
