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?

This is one of my all time favorites. April 25, 2010 Daytona Beach, FL.
I had this shot planned out in my mind for months, and it turned out to be some of the craziest lightning I have ever seen.

    Thank you Samuel and Jon. I had this shot in my mind for a few months when I went to the same spot for a sunset shot. The lightning makes it, and then to have that kind of crazy lightning just topped it off.
