"That's right, David," as I am getting very good use of this vintage & very inexpensive telephoto lens set-up. I captured this beautiful Monarch Butterfly on the Newport Cliffwalk at the "full 450mm effective 35 mm equivalent." I really enjoy the manual focus that is required of me for every shot, but my Pentax K100D has a really nice optical viewfinder. Thanks, David, for your comment & interest in my work. Also recognizing Sandy, Hugh, & Andy, for their early comments. Hope that everyone's Weekend is going well.

Ciao~ Peter

Nice capture of the Monarch, Peter. Are they still on the northward trek, or is this one on the way back to Mexico? Beautiful shot, whichever.
(I hope Irene doesn't give you too much trouble !)

Lovely shot, Peter. Since you didn't mention Irene, I am thinking you are faring well with the weather.

I very recently visited butterfly world in England (near the M4) and photographed some monarch butterflies myself so I'll try and get some on soon. Great colours and well positioned with the pink flowers. - Chris
