Default Redhead Duck - FZ150 with TCON-17

I used the Vivid Setting and turned Saturation to +2. A few more shots under this one on Flickr. These were all shot in a harbor. We have photogenic water in Lake Michigan.

Thanks gordy and jj. Maybe twenty feet or a bit more. The ducks were in a bit of open water and could not swim much farther away due to harbor ice.

Just curious; what is the advantage of using the TCON-17 at such a close range

Mainly I used it because it was on the camera and I did not feel like removing it and setting it on the ice I was standing on. And the minute I did something good would have appeared at a good distance. I usually have the TCON-17 on whatever camera I am using as I walk the lakefront and lots of things swim or fly by at a good distance.

Really wonderful shots of some very pretty birds, Steve! Yes, the water surface looks very nice too.

jj, I routinely use the TCON (actually the LT55) on my FZ35 at ranges as close as 10feet or even less for real closeups of birds. Some of the egret shots I posted earlier were using the LT55 and I got to about 8 feet of the bird and got his closeup face shots.
