Here's one with the 200/1.8 and 2x extender. This was an experiment in how well it would resolve with the 2x extender rather than the 1.4x. I'm fairly pleased with the results:

That combo looks like it worked real well. Do you recall what the apeture setting was?

Houston, soon the birds are going to be leaving the feeder area and I'll be needing to go out and find them myself, without the attraction of seeds. That could be interesting to say the least. I'm sure that my photos may not be so close in due time :roll:

Thanks for the compliment Kiraly, I appreciate you having a look at the photos. Don't be a stranger to the forum. Cheers.

Thanks for the info Norm. Was just trying to get an idea the correlation of DOF.
Good hunting in the future Norm. I think half the fun is just trying to find
birds and wildlife to photograph. A lot of my photos are just chance encounters
in the woods. However, there are some areas in the wild that I have identified as commonly
having subjects to photograph. But, natures time isn't necessarily people time, so sometimes those spots are empty and sometimes there loaded.
So good luck!!!!
