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?

    Wow, what a capture of this fabulous bird.. I got some shots of a blue heron leaving our pond last summer, but nothing like this!!

    Great shot!!! I find it very difficult to shoot birds with a tripod. I am thankful for fast ISOs and shutterspeeds.
