    I intent to go for both days so I'll do my best Evan I've just bought a 100-250mm zoom for the job. You may make it over Evan with a good tail wind (about 500 knots I would imagine) :lol:

    It would require at least that! My Camry is 11 years old, leaks oil, and has a host of minor problems that I just haven't fixed. So I will enjoy your pictures and be satisfied for now. 8)
