beautiful. To get two shots with perfect reflections of their heads is amazing.

Looking for my new teleconverter. Should arrive today. Ordered the 1.7x but the store called and said they were backordered and suggested the new 2.2x for a bit more money of course.

I really like the color you got on the buffleheads. I have seen them at a distance but never nearly that close before.

Thanks, looking forward to your shot with your new teleconverter. Which one is the 2.2x?

Turns out it isn't a Panasonic. A Hila OpticsHD. I don't know anything about that company. I am going to try it out, It may be a real good lens. It certainly does reach way out there, but nothing compares to being close to the subject.

Not only do you take nice sharp pictures, you are also an expert on identifying your subjects, most of us don't know one duck from another.
