Very nice shots after my last post here!!!
Lion Rock nice shots! And BTW, take more memory cards when coming to Hawaii I suspect you will need them :)!
npdien - as always great shots, I don't know what else to say...

But I have a problem: I spent my childhood 50/50 between town and village house (Europe) with huge garden and at least 10 apricot trees. I know there is more than one species of "apricot" on the planet, but what I have seen an eaten has the scientific name Prunus armeniaca (the apricots one can buy in the stores, at least here, on Hawaii and most of the places on the Earth).
Please (both of you, please!) if you can supply me with more info of that apricot with yellow flowers? For biologist to see these pictures and not able to say what it is, is probably like the feeling of photographer who has camera in  his hands, but has no idea what "..." (censured by myself :)) brand it is ;D

Here is my contribution: the Red Cotton Tree - can be red and orange actually. I have no idea what is the tree on the third pic (but working on it). The last one is of category of simple things, I have weakness for them.

Nice shots, I like the first 2 shots.
I'll bring CF and SD cards and a backup external SSD drive.  Those are a given.
I'll bring my standard zoom and 100-400 zoom.  Add to those, my 100mm macro, just in case.
But, I'm afraid there would not be a lot of shooting, since we're only staying in one place per island.  And my brother does not move very easily.

The first two are more carefully PP.

Take the macro - even if you don't move from the resort (if you still aim at that one here, on Oahu) you will have opportunity to shoot macro. And you always can rent a car to visit other parts of the island. One very good place to shoot flora is a botanical garden on the North shore. It's the only bot. garden where you have to pay but it's a gem! And for 10$ you can rent a "taxi" (small carts) to move across the garden - it's rather big.

Thanks for the advice.
I normally don't take the macro, but, I know that there are flowers to shoot, so I am bringing it this time.
It's not like I'm tied down, but not like I can roam around all the time when I was visiting Australia recently.
I'll look at travel guides later on to see which I should not miss.  So, botanical garden is now on the list.  Thanks.

Flowers (Tulips) with white background.
5DSR, 85mm f/1.4L IS, f5.6, 1/30 sec, handheld, indoors.
The background is actually accumulated snow on the deck reflecting through the window.
