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?

Calle de Lorca, Viznar, Granada
Tree in Viznar, Granada, Spain. A pasted poem (el olivo - the olive), left as a memorial for the Spanish Poet Federico García Lorca, who it is believed was executed, along with a one legged school teacher, Dióscoro Galindo, and plumber and part-time bullfighter,Francisco Baladi, near this spot on 19 August 1936 by local Falange - Nationalist militia - on 19 August 1936 at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War (17 July 1936 to 1 April 1939). He was thrown into an unmarked grave somewhere between Víznar and Alfacar, near Granada. Biographer, Ian Gibson states that García Lorca´s assassination was part of a campaign of mass executions directed to eliminate all the supporters of the left-wing Popular Front. The dossier compiled at Franco's request has yet to surface.
