I took this shot the morning after previous teleconverter post.

Fortunately I managed to get the sunlight behind me.

Hi Ian,

Terrific shot!

If your Kigfishers are as tough to get close to as ours are, you did really well. I've spent over two years chasing them around and only managed to get some really good shots this past spring -- totally by perseverance (and a whole lot of luck:-)).

Nice job!

Scott

Ditto! I too have been chasing these little bu__ers for more than 3 years, and have yet to get a chance to photo one from more than about 300 feet. Well done!!!.....cheers.........Don

:-) Ditto Ditto, haven't gotten even close to get them visible in a shot.

Great - Ronny

That came out pretty well considering the set up. I have just ordered the Tamron but didnt think it would do well with the tamron 1.4 x tc i have.

I've gotten pretty good results with a Tamron 70-300 and a 2X but I see now I need to go to a 1.4 to sharpen them up. Very nice photo.

Thank you Scott, Don, Ronny, TC3 and Dawg.

Early days yet with this set-up but wherever possible I intend to shoot at ISO 400 so won't need to use anti-noiseware or keep it to a minimum.
