This little fellow flew into my parent's house when I was visiting them recently. For a bug it looks really cure with big eyes and 'ears' (the antennae).

Can see the individual lenses on the eyes in the full size photos.

Thanks all. Just wish flickr would allow sharing of larger images. Even the largest doesn't show the full detail on the eyes and antennae.

Great effect Dan - why the hell did Pentax take the built in flash off models like the K3II and the K1 models- it is a real help

Thanks for the info

I'd rather have the built in GPS. Because I can't use GPS and flash simultaneously on the K-5. I could on any of those with an external flash.

My, those antennae are impressive, and make for a great shot in #3.

Good point Dan but when I think of how many shots I have taken using a built in flash vs how much I use the GPS function there is no contest .

Mainly because the prime objective is to take photos and the B.I.Flash enhances that process - the GPS doesn’t contribute to that objective; or does it ?

I think it likes you. Wonderful photos of it.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass
