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?

The gentleman on the right who is in National Guards had a stand at the County Fair and was shaking hands with my husband on the left after he told him he had served 4 years in the army.

The only problem was my camera at the time got stubborn I think mainly because of the extremely sticky humid weather and was taking its time focusing when I asked them if they could please repeat the hand shake again. I told them someone might wonder why they were holding hands for so long which got them both smiling....I really love the spontaneity of the smiles. The camera perhaps knew when to focus at the right moment!:)

I did have this in the smiling theme briefly but decided to keep the one I had posted earlier.
