The 2xII extender on the 300/4 keeps amazing me at the moment. I've never used that tc much on previous cameras and until this week never on the 1D4, but it will definitely be in the bag from now on.

I took this shot late in the day. I exposed for the whites and hoped for the best. A Great crested grebe.

Thank you so much, Larry. That 2xII really is an eye opener on the 1D4. I won't use it as my default set-up but it's definitely useable.

A couple more Indigo Bunting portraits, taken at a sunflower field long after the blossoms have withered under the summer heat.

Greater Blue Eared Starling:Lake Victoria area,Busia Kenya.Took a certain amount of patience to get this shot as he is quite a shy bird who takes off long before you get in range.Thanks in part,to the long range of the HS50EXR lens
