Tree Frog with Vivitar 100mm/3.5 Macro (1 pic)
1

Hi everybody,

hope you're all doing well here in the Pentax Forum !

I just wanted to share the following shot that i took this morning at the Day camp of my older girl. This Gray Tree Frog was in a tree just besides where i drop her and sign in the morning.

It's an adult Frog, i wanted to share it because it was taken with my K-mount Vivitar 100mm/3.5 Macro lens on my X-E1, so some might be interested in seeing how good is that little lens. Sure it's not as good as the DFA 100mm Macro WR but a very good Macro lens for the price.

I wouldn't be surprised if the frog called you over for the shot... Steeve! Steeve! I'm over hereĀ

One fine frog. One fine lens. One fine pair of steady hands co-ordinated with the eyes!

Hi,

it was taken on a tripod but i could probably have handhold it by boosting the ISO.

Thank you.

Hi Leopold

It looks like the frog can think or he is trying to hypnothise you. I like the expression

cheers

Yes, the picture/composition and the frog are nice. However I have a feeling that the colours of your Pentax pictures were better, less "digital". But again it's just my feeling.
