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?

There is a poor fish or two stuck in this big old beak. Curt Cobain says that fish don't have any feelings. I do hope he is right. LOL.

    Oh, wow....what a great shot of the brown pelican!!! I love the pelicans, Regenia, and this shot you've composed is wonderful!!! I don't think fish have the same nervous system as far as pain goes (when compared to other animals.) I hope I'm right....I hate for anything living to hurt.

    He looks so jolly, Regenia!! I guess he is happy with his catch. I believe fish are supposed to be part of the food chain, and are eaten by most creatures...I love them.

    Now how would Curt know that?...remember he blew his head off....not to make light of the tradgedy....perhaps he found out that fish dd indeed have feelings...Buddha says that ALL living sentinent things have the Buddha nature....if one or something has the Buddha nature, it has feelings...all living things have feelings...we are just too far down to realize or acknowledge this.....this stork thing has such a big bag, he could keep a bowling ball in there and still have room for lunch...
