Welcome to the # 603rd edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering the period 27 July through 9nd August 2020. Let's see what you have been shooting.

POTW is a great spot to show off six or fewer shots you take or are editing within the thread's date range.

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.

Starting us off again. Been taking the kids of the Orphanage where I work, on daily outings this week, seeing that they have some "holidays", and they have been studying and keeping up with the school curriculum since March. They are thoroughly enjoying the 4km Hike that I am doing with them (23 at a time) as well as a visit to Zoo Lake. These are random shots from those outings

Strange fly

We've been blessed with seeing the Mountain Reedbuck every day

This dad took his kid out for some exercise

And I got a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS on Saturday, having wanted a small P&S camera for when I do not feel like lugging the camera bag and gear around with me. Took it for a spin at the Johannesburg Botanical Gardens.

Last week I took few photos, and only with my m43 kit along bike rides. I'm catching up now with a few from neighborhood walks.:

Thanks for started the thread Noel.

I haven't been taking many photos lately. Saw this six-legged lady in my back yard the other day when I picked up some debris that she was hiding under. Two legs shy but she's still defending her brood.

Thanks for hosting, Noel!

This creative blur of Lucky Sunset Rose flowers a variety of lantana was captured at Dow Gardens in Midland, Michigan, with a Pentax K-S2. I have been posting daily floral photos at Facebook, hoping to give people something to which they can look forward during the pandemic. Thus far those posted photos have not been abstracts. I haven't posted this one at Facebook.
