I've been in the reverse situation to you, and seen people with smaller cameras walk past me because I've got a D3. It's made me feel I've done something wrong!
Where I go in Sandwell Valley I've met many people with different cameras from compacts to full professional video cameras, and most will be happy to come and have a chat. It doesn't mean I'm an expert in photography just because I've got a D3, rather the reverse as I'm still learning. Today, I went out with my 400mm F2.8, but as it's so heavy I used my old Nikon 70-300mm F4-5.6 with the D3 to take any pictures that might appear before getting to the place to set up my 400mm F2.8. I've seen fantastic pictures taken on basic cameras and seen some rubbish taken on expensive gear. Go up and have a chat, as most will be happy to talk and could even tell you where to go to get great shots of animals and such.
