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?

I took this photo on the first day I moved into my new apartment in Los Angeles. My roommates and I were marveling at how narrow and tall these beautiful palm trees that lined our street were. It was the last day of our road trip across the US. What a pleasant surprise it was to find this shot at the end of a very long day of traveling all the way from Maine!
