    Big as a small horse they were often fighting. Maybe January was their mating season. One of those got lucky moments. Screetched to a halt, jumped out and pressed the shutter, got lucky. More in 'reply'. Pentax K1 Puerto Natales-1790.jpg

    Wow! This is serious fighting, not just sparring.

    You captured some great action shots there. I shot Pentax for 40 years before starting on my journey to Mirrorless. My last was K5 and K5IIs. Pentax makes some very rugged near bullet proof cameras for sure. I just never did feel comfortable with any DSLR configuration and missed an aperture ring.

    I made the same journey as yourself. Pentax since 1955. Like you fed up with weight and frankly poor resolution though I may have been half the problem. So happy with Fuji x with its old fashioned top plate dials and aperture ring. Looking forward to upgrading XT1 to X-T2 next week. Thanks for remarks.

    Thanks Irene....Hope across the pond to S. Chile and S. Argentina and you will find dream locations and lighting . The Magellan straights, the Moreno glacier and so much more.
    P.S.....Argentina is horribly expensive.

    I always say, "it's better to be lucky than smart!"
    ..
    having the luck and taking advantage of it are 2 separate things...thank god you took advantage - GREAT catch, especially the first and last ones
