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 calf moose heading over to join its mother in the fruit trees behind the spruce. I spotted their tracks in the yard last night and wasn't sure if they were still here or not.. but this confirms it.. they stayed the night munching on my willow trees which are always much tastier than those in the bush nearby.

Thank You, Lynn, for the nomination. It is very much appreciated!
