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?

A sunset capture of a snowy owl. We happened upon this beauty in a tree top beside a highway. They are usually seen just before sunset, perched in a tree top, checking the fields around for mousing possibilities.

    Thank you so much for your comments and favs. It is such a pleasure to be able to share these images with you. And yes, Andrea, I have the utmost respect for these beautiful creatures.. you know, it's hard to express how I feel when a bird like this looks me in the eye like that.. it is incredibly moving and exciting.. it puts me on Cloud 9 for a few days.. :)
