NATIVE PERCA | ARGENTINA

NATIVE PERCA FISH ARGENTINA
Native Perch  Specie 

John Hudgens releasing a native perca (Percichthys Trucha) from the Limay River, Argentina. It was great to see one of the few native species. We had a great day fishing and creating images with Ron Sorenson of Chocolate Lab Expeditions.

The Perca is an interesting fish, a modern fish some say… so like a Perch Bass Trout?

“Grouped under the common name existed four endemic percíctidos Patagonia: Percichthys trout and Percichthys vincigerrai (smallmouth bass), Percichthys colhuapiensis (largemouth bass) and Percichthys laevis . Modern DNA analysis techniques, resolved the questions of classification and determined that there is a single species in Argentina (Percichthys trout).”

After a backcountry meal of homemade empanadas, a warm fire and good friends I set out with the camera to capture some night sky images. The night office consisted of a clear night with an unbelievable start gazing show.

ARGENTINA GAUCHO

ARGENTINA GAUCHO
Patagonia Pampas Cowboy

Last month while in rural Argentina I had a remarkable opportunity to spend time with the gauchos. I am very grateful for the chance to get a glimpse into their life, lifestyle and livelihood. They are all such great examples to me in how to exist in simple transcendental consciousness, the simplest form of human awareness.

This is an image of Hector racking-up his horse after he and his son roped a severely injured calf. Unfortunately the injury was fatal and the animal was put down. A tough blow to a gaucho, a grown cow is worth more at market than a calf. I was able to shoot the traditional killing and butchering process as well. Nothing is wasted out there, not even the blood. It was an incredible learning experience and the asado that followed a few days later was one of the best meals of my life…. I can’t wait to return.

“Si sos gaucho en de verás, no has de mudar, porque andequiera que vayas ira s con tu alma por delante.”

“If you’re really a gaucho, you can’t change, because wherever you go, you’ll go with your soul leading the way.”
    – Ricardo Guiraldes Don Segundo Sombra (translated1935)
