Eastern Comma Moth on Pansies

K-3 and DA 55-300 PLM
ISO 200, ƒ6.3, AV











It really does feel like cheating using this lens. It's 300mm, but it's light and easy to carry, with nice balance on the camera. It's sharp enough for close ups, Pentax engineers seem to have figured out exactly where sharpness becomes an issue and designed to that spec. The speed of AF and quietness i pretty much unmatched. With a bit tighter tolerances in the glass elements, this lens could have even more lights out than it is. But fast accurate auto focus makes up for a lot.

Taken with a Zebra 135mm F3.5 at F8. Please excuse my ignorance of what sort of Butterfly this is. Cropped a bit.
