Back in the Fold

Having tried the dark side, M4/3rds. Decided "better the devil you know ". Found using the camera was not as easy as my K3 as well as the astronomical prices of the PRO lenses plus the general short comings of the smaller sensor.These are of course purely my findings. Being honest i could not fault the build quality of the camera, Olympus M10 mk2.
Back with the K3ii. A few snaps from our local park, went looking for squirrels as there are usually quite a few running around but today not a one.

1. A Touch of Pink, don/t know any of the flower names

2. Fruit of the Yew

3.Purple Flowers

4. Warts and All

5. Look like Hips

6. Follow the Light

7. Yellow Flowers

8. A Bit of ICM

Beautiful. Love em all. Thanks
Grumpy GrandPa, Recently Retired.
K-S2 and suffering from a relapse and so now buying digital camera kit - started with a little Lumix TZ80 and now LBA has re-occured for my K-S2. Not sure where it will lead!
Previous addiction has resulted in using Zeniths, Yashicamat, Chinons, Minoltas, Samsungs, Fujis, Cosina, Lumix, Canon, Nikon and Pentax etc etc - have tried most makes in the past 40 years. Love cameras - love taking photos even more

Nice pictures...

... Except for the first one. It looks very much like Himalayan Balsam, a non-native thug which is spreading rapidly via prolific seeding, particularly along streams and rivers . If you see it in flower, remove the flowers, or even uproot the whole plant, so it won't seed and spread. Many conservation organisations hold 'balsam bashing' events - plenty of examples on the web.

Lubbyman, it is growing in the "wild" woodland section of the park but no doubt if it is a problem someone will get it sorted, usually people around doing maintainence on the park.
thanks Grumpy from another Grumpy, so i'm told

Love the richness of colour in that third image! That opening image looks like one of those orchids you buy for the house, that soon die, but yours is living on a tree
