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've heard of peeping Tom's, but peeping Woodpeckers?
This male Northern Flicker started tapping at my bedroom window this afternoon, then it shuffled along the outside of my window pane. My Cat Moosh was right there staring back at him!
So much fun to see and capture!

    Just to enlighten everyone, that is a male Northern Flicker, which is a member of the woodpecker family. Anyway, it was a great capture, Cindy.

    Thank you so much everyone! I often can spot deer, different bird species, squirrels, racoons, and even the rare black bear sightings from my wonderful wilderness windows in Sooke, B.C.

    This bird thinks he is a RAVEN !!!!!! "The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary, Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore, While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping, As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door. "'Tis some visitor," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door - Only this, and nothing more."

    I like the way the streams of water present a painted effect.

    Great capture and I like how the window with its watery condensation creates a filtered effect We've had Chickadees tap at the window admiring their own reflections sometimes...
