5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant binoculars for butterfly and dragonfly watching., 24 July 2011

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pentax 6.5x21 Close Focus Papilio Binoculars (Electronics)
I bought these as a present for my husband. They well and truly live up to expectation. They were recommended to us for butterfly and dragonfly watching specifically because you can focus to such a short distance (not achievable with our usual binoculars or 'scope). Both of us find them easy to use (I am a glasses wearer, my husband is not). You can focus in incredibly close; the details of dragonflies, buttterflies, bees, flowers etc. just leap out at you and they seem very bright as well, gathering light effectively. Admittedly, we have not used them in very low light levels. They come in a handy waist pouch, so are easy to carry in addition to our other binoculars. The fact that they are not waterproof is not an issue for us - we are not likely to be hunting for butterflies in the rain! The price is very reasonable for what you get.
Would I also recommend them? Absolutely - I just wish we had got some years ago!
