Welcome to the 616th edition of Pictures of the Week (POTW), covering the period October 31 to November 14. 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.
To post your great photos, just hit reply and attach away. Feel free to start immediately.

Please:

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.

Thanks very much to all previous hosts and to people who have posted images!

I'm continuing my long string of macro shots on POTW. One of these days I'll get out and take photos of something other than bugs!

I rescued a few bugs from a swimming pool today.

I think it's a gold-dust weevil:


I fished 6 or 7 of these out of the pool but unfortunately only 2 made it.


This one wasn't a rescue. Spotted napping nearby:

Thanks for hosting nosliwmit, like those insect shots! Before this thread closes, let me make a contribution. Monday saw me at Rietfontein Nature Reserve, (I was in the area) and focused on Insects.
Plenty of these around


A dragon in flight


Sand Tiger Beetle


Plenty of these around as well




And a pleasure to see a Bearded Woodpecker

Great photos Eva! I especially like #4 and #5. The pup doesn't look too happy!

Great insect photos! I especially like the dragonfly in flight and the black and yellow critter. And who doesn't like woodpeckers?

Very moody shot. It looks like a branch has been rubbing that fence for years. Good one!

I'll get next week's POTW going now (so I can post more insects, of course...).
