I am going to Yellowstone National Park next week.

I like to take both landscape and wildlife photos (including birds).
Any suggestion what gear I should take with me? Below is what I have.


70-200 2.8 IS
100L macro
500 f/4

1.4x TC
580EX flash
Gitzo 2531 with Mankin
Gitzo 0531 with RRS B-30
Wimberley gimbal
Cokin ND, grad ND filters

The 500/4 for sure (+ gimbal head and tripod), unless you're flying and have space limitations. I'd also bring the zooms and the TS lens. Yellowstone has restrictions on where you can walk around the geothermal features - you cannot always "zoom with your feet".
