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 just had to add this. This is a picture from the summer of 2009. (not sure where JPG got 2004 as the coons are seldom seen in January) Mother raccoon is inspecting the rubber duck I have placed their for their entertainment. They really enjoyed it. These raccoons are NOT pets, just night visitors.

YOU JUST HAVE TO SEE the video I have placed below. I wonder if that's me in that ad? I always put on the tag wildlife. As I look at this I wonder...wildlife? I do not pet them or hand feed them so I guess they are wild, but this is a bit cozy if you ask me. Should I tag my pictures spoiled wildlife :-( What better to do on a warm summer night than to sit in a nice swimming pool and enjoy life without the kids for a short time.
