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?

    Perfect for the theme and a beautiful shot as well. I love the haze in the background that is so effective for this image as it gives impact to the stark realism ... The deep tones in the foreground field leads the eye to the building and trees...You have my vote!
