As can be easily seen, most of my photos on this trip were taken with the 100-400 zoom. Based on discussions with a number of other photographers, I decided to leave the 600L home, along with tripod and monpod. The logistics of getting on and off the islands, along with the need for minimizing weight and maximizing mobility, were the basis for this decision, and if I were to go again, I'd make the same choice.
