    I just heard on another moto-board that Ferris may drag the RK out and blow the dust off his camera. We can only hope!:clap

    Mildest winter since we moved east, and the past week we've had temps (and humidity) worthy of summer,
    in spite of the fact the calendar says it's still winter.​

    Finally broke out the Road King and the new Lumix today. After putting 155 rounds down-range at Pro Shots
    in Rural Hall, North Carolina, USA, I took the long way home and looked for photo ops.​

    I knew I'd get wet before the day was over (afternoon thunderstorms were predicted), but I don't care so much
    about the rain, it's the electricity that gets my attention. I'm happy to report I didn't get zapped.​

    I got a couple of decent photos outta the deal; hope you enjoy.​

    This is looking down the pipe of the daffodil in the previous photo. The Lumix has a 600-mm equivalent lens,
    but will also focus down to literally nothing; this pic was taken with the UV filter pressed up against
    the petals to hold it still while I took the shot. Remarkable range, this camera.
