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'm not unfamiliar with this spectacular phenomenon called a "Glory," but this was by-far the best image I've been able to collect. There are a few reasons for this: 1.) The conditions have to be precise, moisture in the clouds, open view of the sun from one side, and solid cloud coverage on the other side, 2.) Oftentimes, the view is only momentary and flickers in and out of view, and 3.) It is seen when you are passing through the clouds, typically on ascent or descent, and "use of electronic devices is prohibited." You just can't get caught ; ) It was worth it!
