Thanks to all who post comments.  This thread updates so often that I miss comments posted.  I appreciate those who keep up with this on a regular basis.  Here are a few from a recent trip to Bombay Hook NWR, DE.
1DIV, 5DIII, 7D and too many lenses to list.
Too much time, too little gear...scratch that, reverse it.
