Here are three more shots from last Fridays trip. Posting to show what I was able to do with the teleconverter lens.

The first shot is a closeup of some American Coots.

This last shot is of a small group of White Fronted Geese that were about 150-175 feet out. Cropped slightly, about 25%

Thanks Tom and Jazz,
That's really nice to hear. It will be worth all the PB&J sandwhiches I will be eating for the next few months.

Thanks again guys for all the encouragement.

Steve

Thanks, but have you ever read how many preservatives are in that stuff. I think that they use the broth for embalming fluid in some third world countries. :lol:

Thanks for looking,

Steve

My favorite of this series is the squirrel; catching them playing in water is a rare event. I have been by that refuge many times over the years but never managed to stop there - as I was always on the way somewhere else.

Maybe my wife & daughter should visit grandpa in Willows while I spend time looking for such fine subjects.

Absolutely, I don't think you would regret it. They have a great visitors center. If you do go, my only advise is drive slow there are many opportunities right next to the road if your are observant. And bring an extra battery or two.
You can only get out of your car in two places but you can pull over and stop for as long as you like. If you stop and shut off the motor all kinds of critters start appearing to resume feeding. Just be patient. Good luck, and good shooting.
