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 know it's not the best composition but thought it was in interesting subject.

I saw something fall from the air and went to investigate.
Turned out that this Cicada Killer had caught it's prey in midair and they fell to the ground. By the time I got there the Killer was already well into it's meal. I went back to the car for my Macro lens and found only the cicada's dead body.
