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 almost deleted this but decided to keep it because it is oddly different in a pretty way....and
I kind of like it:) It appears like it got some iridescent colors from the sunlight that you don't always see otherwise. It was getting ready to fly away when I had just turned my camera on to capture it.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!!!

    The quivering wings and iridescent colors make for an unusual and outstanding image! I have a similar shot I took this summer where the butterfly was hovering over a blossom. I love this shot and am glad you chose to keep and share it with us!
