Cheap Consumer Zoom

The DA 55-300 is admittedly only cheap in comparison to the pro-grade DA* zooms; it's about twice the price of the other variable aperture out-to-300mm zooms available in Pentax mount.
On the other hand, these were taken at 300mm, hand held, less than 30 degrees off the setting sun, and the subject was in front of a whitish concrete wall. So not the easiest subject and grounds to be pleased with the rendering and the bokeh.

Absolutely no idea in this world what kind of butterfly is going nom-nom-nom on these particular flowers.
