Greetings from Texas

Hello all.... My first camera was a Pentax K-1000 I purchased in 1980 to take pictures of my first child. That camera served me well until I bought my first digital SLR in 2010 (a K-x).
I just upgraded from my K-x to a K-S2 and am trying to get used to the new body. I have the stock Pentax DAL 18-50, a Pentax DAL 55-300, Tamron 18-105, and just bought a Tamron adaptail II 70-210 macro.
My favorite subjects are butterflies, flowers, airplanes, nature settings, and my 4 year old granddaughter. I look forward to improving my skills and interacting with the Pentax faithful.

Hi dronegeek. Welcome to the Pentax forums. Many members here enjoy photographing the same subjects as you, so you already have much in common with many of us. Very good 1st image too. Good to have you here.

Hello and welcome to the forums - great to have you with us

Well, three of your favourite subject types are especially challenging - butterflies, airplanes and your 4-year-old granddaughter (and I can guess which - or who - is the most challenging ). Looking forward to seeing more of your shots
