Long time lurker, finally posting.

I've been reading the forum for advice for quite a while now so finally decided to post.
I've been a Pentax fan since I started with the original manual MX which I still have (just had it refurbished).
Got out of photography for a while but have gotten back into it.
Bought a K-3 last summer and just got the D FA 150-450mm. Very pleased with the results hand held.
I prefer wildlife photography. Live an hour from Yellowstone, hour from Hebgen Lake and 2 hours from Lake Ennis. So spend much of my time there.
Ted Turners property near Bozeman has a lot of raptors that you can get good pictures of, from the turnouts on the road.
I've learned a lot reading the discussions and lens reviews. Hope to learn a lot more.

Welcome aboard. Do you live along Route 20 in Idaho? That seems to fit with the information you provided. Interesting place geologically too. I live about 10 miles form Route 20 in NY. Awesome road to follow across the country. I just tend to avoid it where it goes through major cities.

I am trying to convince my wife to relocate to Idaho falls.
