Re: Max's Full Spring 2018 Trip Report (May 25 - June 7)

Great reports Max, thanks! Fantastic photos! I almost feel like I was with you too....wait a minute, I guess I was lol. I saw you guys at Sheepeater and caught up with you again shooting the owls in Mammoth (thanks for the heads up on location and there being no Elk around, they seem very protective...

Re: Gear Question

Thanks Paula! The water levels were just as everyone said. Some of the picnic tables at Nez Perce were essentially out in the river. We saw three water crossings, 2 with Bison (2 adults crossing the Yellowstone near Alum Creek and 4 adults and 2 red dogs across the Madison - a little hairy but they ...

Re: Gear Question

Paula, That was such the perfect case I picked up an older used version shortly after I bought the lens. I think the older one is carry on legal, but I was nervous about it (and the weight) so I picked up this insert for a Pelican case that fits really well in a standard carry on bag with rollers. T...

Re: Gear Question

Thanks Max and Paula! My instinct told me to leave it, but I had second thoughts. I picked up the 600 used locally and am having fun with it, but it doesn't get too far from the vehicle. I'm going to have to decide whether to keep the 600 or my older 500 and the weight is definitely a factor. Maybe ...

Gear Question

This will be my first trip to Yellowstone with the Canon 600 v1. I'm trying to keep things as simple (and light) as possible, as most of my lenses and bodies will be in carry on (tripod, gimbal and other gear in check in). That said, I'm thinking of leaving my monopod behind. It's more the head that...

Re: Smugmug Acquires Flickr!

I'm curious to see where it will lead. I use Flickr primarily for nature/wildlife shots and events my son participates in. While I have all my shots backed up, it would take a lot of time to sift through them again. I enjoy using Flickr to look back at trips/events and enjoy the bit of back and fort...

Re: Owl Monday

The Great Gray is definitely on my wish list! All these shots are fantastic! We had a Short Eared hanging around this winter (first time for me): https://farm1.staticflickr.com/873/41275034532_9d11e9d352_c.jpg "What's this? What's this?" by Rick Wilhelmsen , on Flickr And we reap...

Re: Spring trip booked

Flying into SLC on May 31 and back out again on June 8. The Thursday departure was initially less expensive than a Friday or Saturday, and we wanted to be back on the Friday to see the Grandaughter over the weekend. (Priorities!) We don't enjoy the long drive to West Yellowstone on the first day, bu...

Re: Spring trip booked

Finally pulled the trigger over the weekend! Flights to Bozeman from Providence or Boston were rising instead of falling, so we booked a direct Boston to SLC flight for half the cost of flying in and out of Bozeman. We had to cancel our last 2 nights North of Gardiner and booked the last 2 for Jacks...
