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 shadow declineth...but thou O Lord shalt endure forever; and thy remembrance unto all generations Psalms 102: 11-12

The sun came out
As did the shadow
Without a doubt...
God brought its glow
Though it was brief,
For light and shadow
To dance upon a leaf!
Poetry by me, AJP

As I was about to upload this picture the power went off briefly and it reminded me of this image how just as quickly light and shadow pinpointed it path on this leaf and imprinted its memory.

Thank you so much Thad Zajdowicz for the generous spotlight.
