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 was walking back from a nice beach located in the lower part of Madagascar in a town called Fort Dauphin. These young guys where having fun on one of the only tar roads in the area that was about 2 KM long. They where still giving it everything they had even thought they where bare foot. I took this shot and asked him to hold my camera while i showed him how to ollie. My attempt was pretty lame but i impressed them with a jump of about 3 inches high.
