I know this isn't a gear thread but for fun I slapped the 1.7TC onto the lens. No MFA (or whatever Nikon calls it). I felt like
I was half a football field away.

Superb sharp-shinned Hawk close-up, Rob. It still has blood on it's beak.

And I was just getting ready to meet my wife for an early lunch. I think I'm going to make that dinner instead.:lol:
The sharpness and detail of that shot is amazing, Shalu. I guess that completes the wedding ceremony. :p

Love the positioning here and the contrasts in the birds.
Nice reflections. All adds up to a beautiful photo

Thank you Richard for the very encouraging comments. They are much appreciated.

Nice bluebird shot, Robert. I wish you could send some of them over my way.  :p

Ten star Shalu. I'm a meat eater (keto-paleo) so would get along with the Kites!

Thank you very much, Robert! :-P:lol:

Thank you very much, Mike! "meat my wife", is that intentional? Did all the meat eating pictures get into your subconscious? :-P:lol:

A more innocent portrait of killdeer.

Sharp as a tack, shalu...excellent shot.
I actually meant to say meet instead of meat. I saw my mistake, got a business phone call that lasted quite awhile, and totally forgot to change the word to it's proper spelling. I have made a lot of blunders here on the forums lately. My advice to you, when you get old is, "don't let the old man in." There is a new country song called "don't let the old man in." It is sung by Toby Keith and the video is done by Clint Eastwood. Check it out. I think it's really cool.

Robert, I have to say the 1.7X isn't cutting it on D850. Usually your pictures are much sharper than this.:-( ...Never mind, it is probably due to long distance upon noticing your last sentence.
