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?

Sunrise Haiku

    Beautiful, I'd vote if this was under zen but house doesn't seem so appropriate

    Well, I was sitting on my bed when I took it... :)
    But it is maybe more Zen-like than Home-like, agreed!
