I was due to go out last weekend, but the missus didn't feel to good, so I curbed my impatience and waited until this weekend.

Went to one of my favourite places, with both Meerkats (in the open) and butterflies.

A few shots, all straight from the camera as I haven't got the time for too much PP at present. They will gradually be replaced as time allows.

Meerkat, Meerkat, Short Claw Asian Otters, Skunk, Owl Butterfly, Glasswing Butterfly, and Egyptian Fruit Bats.

The fruit bats are in near darkness, but by upping the ISO, I finally got a usable shot.

As usual, the rest of the images are on my Flickr site.

I was certainly impressed with the K20D, both in response time, adn features.

I forgot to try the DR setting, but did make use of the x-sync socket, as I was using 3 flashes for the butterfly shots.

This really is what the K10D should have been.

C&C always welcome and encouraged.

All of them are very nice Dal, I don't think you will be looking backwards at your old camera.

Another K20 convert! It is amazing how a camera can be so similar but so different, isn't it? You certainly are doing well with it. It makes photography great fun.

Well put. Wonderful series of shots, Dal. Congrats on the K20. I know you're going to love it as much as the rest of us do.

Thanks Guys

I think apart from setting up the flash, which I am working on, I have finally put the Nikon lust behind me.

By the way, is that a glass-wing butterfly?

Duh - re-read the first post and saw you listed it. It sure is a pretty butterfly, some day I hope to actually see one.
