I took out another manual focus lens today on my Fuji X-T2.  It is a Pentax 
Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 200/4, from the 1970s.  It's biggest shortcoming is that its 
closest focus distance is 2.5 meters (8.2 ft.)Â  Insects were not cooperative, so I moved 
toward the bird feeder support post, where this male Purple Finch was giving me the message 
that I was disturbing his snack.


The lesson learned was that old guys best stick to autofocus.
I recognize that lichen. Interesting juxtaposition of the red in the bird (or 
purple?) and the background. Nicely composed.

I'm with Moose, autofocus, and I'm younger than Moose. Someday I'll have to try 
out bird-eye-autofocus.
