Posted By: aaacb, 03-24-2021, 01:26 PM

Welcome to the 630th edition of Pictures of the Week (POTW), covering the period March 15 to April 6, 2021. 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.

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!

Good idea! Sorry I've been absent...

I went for a hike last weekend with my wife. It's been a stressful time and it was nice to get out. I took only my K-5 and my 35mm Ltd. I will be leaving Hong Kong this summer and it's an exciting time but also a bit sad and a bit stressful too. Nothing is easy in these COVID times...

A moth:

And another moth:

And a wasp of some sort guarding some eggs. I got really close and she (?) didn't stir...

And finally, what I think is a shed spider-skin:

nice photos, you must have gotten pretty close to the subjects

For this second week, I have a couple more longer exposures. Same k1ii and dfa 28-105 and 6 stop nd, except this time it was pouring, it was nice to be surrounded by water
