Q: Choosing a Pentax prime lens

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

[Near I-17 southbound, half-way between Flagstaff and Phoenix; June, 2011]

I have previously reported on the strange mutants that have been sighted in the Southwest, the probable result of above-ground nuclear testing in the 1950s. (Please click on the link, below, for additional details.)

So, I was not completely surprised to see this friendly “lady bee” on an Arizona highway.


I am sure I speak for many when I say that Susan is sorely missed. Her creativity, humor, and sparkling personality are unsurpassed.

Thank you, Susan.
