APHRODITE FRITILLARY (SPEYERICA APHRODITE), GREEN, MICHIGAN, JULY 9, 2012
SMC Pentax-DA 18-135 at 135mm
1/1000 sec. f8
How nice of this little butterfly to flit onto the flowers next to me as I took a brand-new 18-135mm wide-angle-to-medium-telephoto lens out for its first spin!
Though the 18-135 is not a macro lens, it does focus very closely, and I think this one will become the regular walk-around lens for my K-5, supplanting a three-year-old Sigma 17-70mm.
