I'm betting you used the card from your K-r in your K-5 without clearing it first. The camera will use the last filename number and go from there. Rename one (the last one taken) to whatever your actual shutter count is. Page 312 in the manual shows you the memory menu (the items that the camera remembers), clear the one that says File No. Put the card in the camera and turn it on. Then re-check the file no. option in the menu. That should get your picture number back to the actual count.

Thanks it worked, the numbering is back to normal
