    Thanks for the kind words and the pick of the week!. I was really excited when I took this and saw it on the camera LCD.

    This particular species was especially challenging to capture and it was one of the very last images I took while in Ecuador.

    Thanks! It was one of the gems of the trip for sure. I was participating in a workshop put on by Naturescapes.net and (thankfully) the flash gear was provided. BTW....I can highly recommend them as everything about the experience was first rate.

    As for luggage, I was able again to bring most all my gear as carry ons ..... the 600, 100-400, 5DMKIV and Teleconverters in the 1510 Pelican. Two other bodies, batteries, memory cards, card readers, external drive, cables and laptop in a leather shoulder case. Tripod and gimbal head, battery chargers, rain covers, 2 on camera flashes and some other miscellaneous gear like tools and cleaning supplies in my checked bag.
