    Butts? All went hiding in the rain... Insects, got some, but lazy to change lens (FA 100 instead of the A50) coz' drizzling. Anyways, it's only an hours worth of shot, or even lesser. The rain 'force' us close to 3 hrs of solid chit-chat!!

    I was tempted to go this morning before I go SKC, but after it started raining a bit I decided not to go^^; So just went SKC instead. Anyway I'm sure many would benifit from those 3hrs

    This in particular annoyed me until I gave up! The branch was swinging with rain and I couldn't stand still hehe...
    I can see you... (sorry about the blurry photo! Just wanted to show what made me almost yell at the little fellow haha!)


    Long way up...


    135mm f2.5 K Manual, FW you were right... this is one amazingly sharp lens!



    Enjoyed a lot, rain added a bit to the focusing frustrations but Loved every single moment

    Such gatherings are bad for the wallet Anyway, if you can't get money worth for ur tamron, let me know. We can go for some macros when u are around balestier or TPY area

    I have started to Appreciate the colors Pentax + Pentax lens give... No 3rd party can match

    I know with the D200 I could have NEVER shot that silly mantis sitting under the leaf upside down

    ishou80, I'd always shared this with ppl on macro (dunno if night86mare bro and snowywolf sis remember). Many tends to give up macro before they even attempt or had attempted a few times. So they are limiting themselves. You just need the "know how" to do it.

    So don't worry about sharing ur shots, u'll improved better if u know how u can improve. If you need help to know how to use your sigma (70-300mm?) well, let me know when we meet

    Mantis are great subjects. They are one of the the easier insect^^;
