Appreciate the invite Dawg

I can definitely see the plus side to that approach.
Yes there are many benifits to this aproach...Relaxation and stress relief being only two!

All good ideas Scott and would be nice if it were feasable in this case! I shoot from my rocker on my front porch as it is just plain comfy! Got my Beer or coffee and my ash tray sitting right there.
Truly a man after my own heart. There are times when I'm willing to work hard to get a bird shot, but when I'm trying to shoot around my feeders, I'm usually relaxing in a lawn chair and enjoying my morning coffee. Stalking is not something I do well and my size tends to intimidate small birds (and small children). Get the coffee pot ready, Ed. One of these days I'm gonna make it back down there.

Got a rocking chair with your name on it! LOL

Hi John, Dennis, and Daniel,

Thanks! I kinda like them myself :-).

Dennis -- These were taken with a DS and Tamron SP 300 f2.8 LD (IF) plus the Tamron 140F 1.4x Adaptall 2 TC stacked on a Pentax F 1.7x Auto Focusing Adapter for a total combo of 710mm f6.7 that auto focuses because of the 1.7x AFA.

I realize that stacking TCs isn't supposed to work, but it does in this case for me, so I'm not complaining -- saved me boku $$$s in my never-ending search for more reach. . .

Scott
