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?

Wai’anapanapa (Glistening Waters) State Park is near Hana, Maui. It is one of the many natural wonders Maui has to offer, but like so much of nature’s environment, it finds itself trying to coexist with man’s environmental changes.

While walking through the park on man made dirt paths or the restored section of the ancient Hawaiian King’s Highway, visitors can find such eye-catching natural wonders as the black sand beach, a blow hole, a lava tube, and fresh water caves within the park’s 120 acres. As you walk, you’ll pass the ancient Hawaiian Honokalani Cemetery and numerous signs pointing out mother nature’s dangers: the man-of-war, the currents, the absence of lifeguards, and admonishments to keep the park clean. Most visitors seem to take those admonishments seriously, but some can’t seem to resist leaving their personal imprint on the Agave plant found near the steps leading to the black sand beach.

    My dad grew up near the town of Tequila (Yes, there is such a town) and he remembers leaving love promises on the agave plants.
