Nice shots, this is a great inexpensive legacy telephoto - I got mine for $11 including shipping in Pentax M42 mount a couple of years ago.
It's not RAZOR sharp, but it really renders beautifully, as you can see from your shot of the sparrow near the flower and patio chair, and your willow in the mist. A lot of pixel peepers don't appreciate a lens like this, but it's really a useful tool and quite inexpensive.

Nice set. I sure could have used your lens yesterday. I ventured out to the "Celery Bog" despite the heat and high humidity. While loading for the expedition (OK 7 min drive) I was certain I owned a 200mm, but unfortunately I don't. In retrospect I wish I had selected a sizable 85-205mm vs. the 14-140.
You know, you can pick up these 200mm lenses for under $35 on ebay:
Vivitar 200mm F 3 5 Telephoto Lens for Canon Cameras | eBay
Vivitar 200mm F3 5 1 3 5 200 M42 Mount w Caps Mint | eBay
Vivitar 200mm F 3 5 Lens for Nikon Non AI in Excellent Condiiton | eBay
Vivitar 200mm F3 5 Auto Lens Serial 28805143 Canon FD Mount | eBay
BTW, I have one in M42 mount in very nice shape that I'll sell you for $30 including shipping and PayPal fees - I just picked up a 200mm f3 Vivitar Series 1, which eliminates my need for the 200mm f3.5 that I have.

Another lovely Komine lens. This in FD mount with a 2X-4 teleconverter yeilding an effective 400m. Shot around f11.

I'm going to have to hook up my Tokina Tele-Auto 200/f3.5 and post some shots.
I was really impressed by the 'glow' around your sparrow on the table and as I'm definitely veering towards flora/fauna subjects personally, I'm drawn by your flowers. They have plenty of 'pop' - very reminiscent of my 'Bokina'.
