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?

This guy followed me and my friends all around the Bluff View Art District in Chatt.Tn. We kept a close eye on him because mockingbirds can be somewhat aggressive at times. We came to the conclusion that since he IS the Tn. state bird,he must have known we were locals and left us alone. Ha Ha!

Wonder how the tourists fared?

    Handsome bird, handsome shot!! He's probably the same guy who terrorizes the visitors to the Tenn. Aquarium (on the arched bridge).

    Love it and he is really keeping his eye right on you but also picked some good scenery for you to take his picture..Maybe he is a camera buff and kindly posed for you and the tourists without cameras he mght have chased away:)

    I so love it there in Chattanooga. They have done a great job to revitilize the downtown and utilize the great asset of the river. The walkway from the Bluff to the Aquarium is a great structure. And as you noticed, even the Mockingbird was enjoying the surroundings.
