These are some of the very first shots with my new 300 f4 and TC-14EII.... shot off a tripod, through the open window over the kitchen sink, towards the bird feeder on the deck.....

The routine is: arrive home at 6:00, grab the tripod and camera, open the window, mix a gin & tonic, sip on G&T while waiting for the birds to pose for me... LIFE IS SWEET! Now if I can only get the sun to shine everyday....

Comments please......

Nice shots, Paul. I am currently saving for this very lens. How would you compare it to your 70-200 as far as handeling? It does well with the 2x TC as well. If you are interested I can hook you up with a link to Ronnie's samples.

Very nice images.. You certainly have a good combination there. I like your routine, too. Make mine red wine -- good for the heart, you know.

thanks all for your kind remarks....

anytime you find yourself in beautiful tropical South East Michigan... be sure to stop by... I will be certain to have all the "health" tonics on hand - Gin, Mojito, white russians and red wine (and some spiced rum)!

super shots with a great combo, and the photog skill is to be commended too. too often we forget that good tools need good guidance!

Cheers,

Wade
