I have never had a GBH pose for me as this one did that day. I was laying flat down on a little bridge and he stood there on that pine log and let me shoot away. And on the way home I got the little Common Snipe at the water hole beside the roadway where I got the Belted Kingfisher the other day.

All taken as ususal with the 20D, 100-400L and 1.4X TC.

Houston, these are TOPS !! Absolute clarity, colors perfect, Etc........

I notice that you use the 1.4 converter. I have one, although the few times I have used it, I have been quite disappointed, so it has become a forgotten piece of equipment at the bottom of the bag for me. Is there an art to using it, or as with all things, try till you succeed ??

Yeah these are wonderful shots! That Heron looks "poorly."

Well Jake, these extenders always diminish the quality of shots, so to truly take advantage of them you need a TOP quality lens, which is what Houston is using. Even his superb clairty would improve without it. Of course, he wouldn't be able to get so close - so in his case the trade off is well worth it.

Thanks for the info Dave - I am also using the 100-400, perhaps i should take the TC out again and see what can be done.
