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?

Ashlyn (6), my youngest granddaughter, during dress rehearsal for Chamberlain School of the Arts spring recital, held at the Eisemann Center in Richardson, near Dallas. What a joy it was to watch her and her big sister perform. Thought it would be interesting to compare this shot with the one above posted for theme.
