I live in a suburb of Washington DC, and I love gorillas and photography. Oh...and sushi. I also love sushi.

I started getting into macro photography in the spring of 2011, after a long absence from shooting. Health and transportation issues keep me at home much of the time, and so I search my own backyard for subject matter. It has opened up a whole new world to me...there are so many amazing tiny creatures to be found everywhere.

Q: I am really into my wildlife photography but cannot afford a super zoom lens, I have a 300mm and am considering a teleconvertor. Has anybody had a experience with these and would you recommend them?

A: Do you know?
