Little sound after taking a photo?

OK, I'm probably being paranoid here, but I noticed today a little sound every time the K-30 takes a photo. It sounds like maybe the SR motor or something. It just lasts for maybe 1/2 sec after the shot is taken. If I take continuous shots, I don't hear the sound until after the burst is over. Can anyone confirm that this is or is not normal? I don't recall hearing this particular noise with my K-r.

Thanks!

I hear it all the time on my K-5- I think it's the SR resetting.
