I really like your pictures, Alan. Especially the first one.

I shot this a couple years ago with a T6i using a cheaper Sigma 18-250mm zoom lens. I shot all day that day not realizing I was in Jpeg mode only! But even with a T6i and low cost lens I managed to capture several keeper Jpegs that day.

This one here I only did a couple slight adjustments too and isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer or could win any "Pic of the Year" awards but it's always been one of my favorites for some reason..........

This Flicker has been laughing from up high all spring.  He finally came down low enough for a quick snap.  Only got this one shot before he flew, very shy.

Haven't packed yet, though the thought process is started.
I think I'll bring a speedlight and a "better Beamer" for the speedlight,  Sometimes shooting BIFs with the sky as background, the details of the bird is lost.
Everything will have to be in a carry on and a camera backpack.  A lot to sacrifice for weight and volume.  And 2 weeks of clothings.  Also, I hope they'll allow a tripod on an airplane as carry on.  Hope I won't pack bad weather in there.

In the meantime, get well.  Rest, too.

Thanks Riley! These were taken June last year. The bird is normally hiding in very dark/dens brush and despite not rare is kind of difficult to shoot. These were feeding on Mountain apple and ignored me (after 5-10 min "adaptation time"). Shots were taken at Lyon Arboretum (at the very end of Manoa valley) - easy to get to and very good botanical garden, belongs to UH. Safe parking and no fees of any kind. Highly recommended!
I hope you are already preparing your luggage for here. Please make sure you discard any bad weather from your suitcases - we have enough of this stuff this year ;)! I'm fighting bad bronchitis in the last week and so - first time in ~15 years on the Islands!

Sorry if I'm late with my answer but I rarely and only briefly look at the computer today. You may check this link: https://www.hawaiicamera.com/. They are family business, I had only twice interactions with them and both times they were for "excellent"! This may eventually decrease your load...
