Posted By: aaacb, 11-20-2021, 09:41 AM

Welcome to the 651st edition of Pictures of the Week (POTW), covering November 15-28 2021. Post photos takes the past week or during the next week. Let's see what you have been shooting and/or processing.

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 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!

If the thread doesn't start, please contact the host, via PM.

Hi all and happy belated Thanksgiving for all of you in the U.S.

I'm visiting Florida this week and, as I always do, I visited Robinson Preserve for an early morning walk. I also visited Neal Preserve, which is quite a bit smaller but has the advantage of no pets or bicycles. Lots to see in both places. All were taken with my K-1 II and DA*300.

The white pelicans are around this time of year. Here's one coming in for a landing:

There are always ospreys to be seen (and to be seen by!):

I think the roseate spoonbills are seasonal. I only saw two or three yesterday but I managed to catch this one flying over:

I have a soft spot for the turkey vultures:

This is an "almost" photo. I was using the 2-second timer on a tripod to capture the perched osprey...

Thanks for hosting again aaacb. Love the light on that first image. A contribution from me.

The young people found a guttural toad near the drain in the yard, captured it, and I took a couple of shots.

Old and new life

A new sighitng at Zoo Lake, where i do a daily walk of 9km

Blessed to see for the 2nd time, this Grey hornbill at a local Park. Usually only seen in the Game and wildlife reserves it is surving and adapting well to an urban environment

This is a bird that has really adapted well to the urban landscape

And pre-colonial transport- Big cry out againsst all things colonial, including our education system, and call to reeturn to pre-colonial days. Instead of cars we'd have this, though even this has elements of colonialism.
