I am behind the camera today because when I was young, if I was taking the pictures, no one was taking my picture. I love photography now because it shows me what I didn't see in the moment and reminds me to look more closely, see more deeply, and look beyond what's right in front of me. I am a mother, nurse practitioner, friend, animal lover,and photographer. This is me with dad...the greatest man on earth.

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?
