Nice shot of the dragon fly!

In Costa Maya during port call you may be able to see the Chacchoben Mayan Ruins and some pretty cool stuff, so definitely your Nex-7 and couple lenses. Get a nice small Tamrac backpack case and throw a couple bottles of water, iPad and your camera gear in for your excursions.

I agree with Bdog completely. The one thing you don't want to do is see a shot and not have that one lens that you left at home. If it were me, and I was going to a place that I may never visit again, I'd take everything I own. But, that's just me. I always tend to over pack my camera stuff because I never know what I'm going to see. As I mentioned to you in an earlier post, I missed a shot in Hawaii because my P&S just wouldn't reach out that far for me to get it.
Best of luck on your trip and I hope you'll share some photos with us when you return.
Jim

Not to keep posting pics I've taken, but like jjdcamper says, "I'd take everything I own".

Below was from my first trip to Cabo and we took a private yacht out to see some wales. I decide to not drag my big camera or lenses with me thinking my P&S would work and we could get close if anything. It was getting low light and you can see the best shot my P&S took, and compare that to my previous post I took the following year.

Have fun, take lots of pics! I'm heading to Punta Cana next week, so I'll be back posting more.

Those mountains look to be pretty far away. Atmospheric conditions could also be playing a part. The distance looks to be miles rather than feet or yards away. At that distance there are all kinds of things that could affect a picture. However, I like your shots!

Thanks, jjd.
They are quite a ways away. You have to be on top of that mountain to really grasp the vastness of that country.
Hopefully I'll give 'er another shot this August -with a filter or two.

I just thought I'd toss this out there for any interested shutterbugs:
The comet Pan-STARRS is supposed to be visible to the naked eye beginning this week in the northern hemisphere.

Wednesday -weather permitting- should be one of the optimum nights for viewing it -apparently right after sunset in the western sky.

Here's an article about it from Canada's CNEWS:
Comet Pan-STARRS visible with naked eye - Science - Canoe.ca

It will hopefully make an interesting subject for those of us who like to shoot the evening skies.

That's great, Don. Gives me a reason to break out my tripod. I hope the weather cooperates. Right now its gray clouds and fog.

Tell me about it!
I drove through it yesterday coming home from Wisconsin.
Met a crew from Appleton! Great people.
Albeit the gray clouds and fog may have been self induced. .......
