Thanks. Oh, there are so many bird opportunities in AZ, I wouldn't consider leaving your 300 behind. This was actually with the 500/4 + 1.4X @ 700mm, but lots to be had with shorter.

I'll still have the 100-400 (I think). I have such little free time I think I'll concentrate on Landscapes. Might hit the Botanical Garden Friday after I land.

The 100-400 would be a good choice. I have done lots there with my 400/5.6. Just got the 500 last week. There are lots of birds at the Botanical Garden and we have a great zoo which is right next to the garden.

Becca, I had the same issue with my 40D a couple of years back, luckily at the tail end of a Maine vacation featuring a Puffin trip, so I didn't miss any shots (I didn't have a backup)

My local camera guy replaced the shutter and the damage was around $250, but I've heard people have paid less.

The good news is he also gave me a broken T-50 that I sent in to buy my 7D thru the Canon Loyalty plan, and now the 40D is a well loved, trusted back up.

Thanks for the info! If it's only around $250 I'll count myself lucky!

Moving back to New York full time in a month. Is there anything here I might've missed in my 15+ years that I *must* see before my departure?

Just because I don't have photos online doesn't mean I haven't been there… been to all of the above. Anything else? (besides Joes BBQ…)

Since you shoot skate photography as well, you need to get some snaps at the gates to hell

Back at work in New England, but got out to DBG, Lost Dutchman, Lake Pleasant (AM) and a Jeep tour just West of where we were staying (headed North on N. Watson Rd. I believe?) Thanks to everybody for the suggestions!

Won't have time to play with them before the weekend, but I uploaded a few into Picasa just to see what was there and thought I'd post one thats a bit different.

Thanks again guys!

Turns out I went birding after all..... Gila Woodpecker (on what I believe is an Organpipe cactus?) in the Desert Botanical Garden. Didn't seem spiny enough for a Saguaro, ID help greatly appreciated!

Nice Shots Rick. Have one of the overall view of that cactus? Could still be a saguaro but I'm not great with plant life here so not 100% positive :-)

Thanks Ryan! Nope, I took one shot only of that scene and I barely cropped it. Odd, I usually bracket a bunch of shots with differing perspectives, but this was on my way out the front gate. Not only was I beat from the heat but had a drive to the Superstitions for the sunset on tap (and then back the hour and a half to check in to my room).

One from Saturday morning at Lake Pleasant. I know the Saguaro in the background, but can anybody help with the flowering Cactus and yellow blossoms?

I think that's the "Strawberry Hedgehog" cactus

The yellow blooming shrub is a Creosote bush
