So, Maui... There are much more native birds there (compared to Oahu). I believe you will get some nice shots there! Good luck!

Jack,
Those are prepayment!  Encouragement!
Now, the real payment should be extracted.  I see one problem:  You're given the best kit, what's to ask for?
Serious thinking ahead!
The trip sounds like fun, how far is it from Vancouver?
Do bring bear repellant when you go.  I hear they're not too friendly!

Oh, everyone else, please forgive the photo here, a thousand humble apologies, totally out of bound, but for it's for Jack, these bear are friendlier  8).

Riley, seems B eagles are more plentiful than ever; a great comeback story so you'll get shots I'm sure.

My hope is to drive to Bella Coola this spring, maybe May.  I'd like to shoot Grizzlies and anything that moves.

I got my present in advance - the 1DX2 and the 400 DO II - pretty good payment, no?

ISv,
At this point, it's still in planning stage.
Have high hopes to go.
I'll try hard to shoot, everything in sight!!!
BTW., do you know how dark is that area at night?  I'd like to shoot the stars if its dark.  Some shots I long for.

Riley, a bear in a bird thread!  How could you.  Very cute.

Yes we carry bear spray.  A ferry ride up the coast would be amazing for you.  It's not that far from Vancouver.

I have no idea how dark it's there, but the island is not that big - you always could find some dark place. Keep in mind: here you will have problem with the winds for long shots. If you go on top of Haleakala, you will have eventually the darkness (moon?), but also some wind and clouds (it's the rainy season here anyway).

Hi ISv,
good to see that you managed to post your pictures; excellent at it (despite the "N****" equipment ;) 8))!
Looking forward to see more of your Hawaiian birds...

Hi Wiebe! Thanks for your words. The failed posting was my mistake - I didn't do it properly.
Here are two more pics, and after that I may disappear for today - I may have plenty to do before the weekend.

Thanks Click!
The second one needs some noise reduction in DxO PL :). On other hand I made rather big print (I think it was 20x30") of that one for my apartment (it stays in front of the door when you go inside and we call it the "Guardian" ;D) and it does not show noise. For my needs as an amateur photographer it is good enough. And yes, the sharpness is not as on the firs one (or I made some mistakes in PP - I switch to digital in 2012 :D)!

Thanks Lion rock! All these are very common for Oahu (Maui too!), if you make your way here - for sure you will get them!

Wanna house swap? It's cold and wet here in Vancouver. Hawaii sounds amazing.
