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?

I have some Blue Jays that hang out in my yard. On a crisp fall morning, just after sunrise, I lured one in with a tempting peanut. Yes, it was a setup. I got the bird to land on my railing in front of a fiery-orange maple tree.
