Hope this hot sunny hike was not too warm for you!
If you did get too hot, the creeks are still flowing cool and clear!
(as always, glad for any suggestions for improving...)

Mole, nice insect and flower shots, all well done! I like the full face shot of the blue dasher best.

Terrific series, I too like the worm on the nose shot.

Awesome closeups Mole! I am amazed at the clarity and detail especially at ISO 800! Nice color and sharpness! Can't say that I have a favorite only because it is difficult to chose which one is the best!

Hi mole,

Great series!!!!

I really need to focus my attention on smaller closer things -- would certainly lighten my camera/gear load when out and about. . .

Thanks for all the positive comments!

Patty - glad you enjoyed them!

Lou - that is quite a face. isn't it? Rare for one to pose so still for so long...

Rodney - thanks! The girl and the caterpillar (Catalpa Sphinx Moth larva) were both very kind and patient!

Jelpee - The K-m seems to do quite well up to ISO 800, although I did use a bit of denoising on the backgrounds of some of these.

Gumnut - Winter gray can be beautiful too - and then too, you can be teasing us N Hemisphere folks with summer pictures in just a few months!

Scott - But them we would all miss your amazing bird photos! Of course, I have to travel pretty light out on the trail, or I wouldn't ever get the Mt top photos!!
