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 happened to see this by chance. He was so engrossed in his picking, with his eyes shut, forgetting the world around him. I could not help taking his photo. Later when I showed him that photo on my camera screen he was happy and allowed me some more of his shots.

In India there is a festival called 'Ganesh Chaturthi' when idol of Lord Ganesha is brought home and worshipped for 5 days. At the end of these 5 days, the idol is then immersed in lake, river or ocean. We met this man when we went to 'Mahi' river in western part of India. He and his son are specialist to carry the idol safely in the water and slowly immerse it.

It is quite a celebration in western India during this time of the year. There are lots of people taking the procession from their homes to the immersion site - they have loud music, people dance and sing all the way.

The festival is during August - September and is mostly celebrated in western India.
