continued lousy skies, but did the best I could. Shot the D2H with the 300 f4 and Birger lent me his 1.7x. In my opinion, the 1.7x is a fine tc, but I am spoiled by the sharpness and performance of my 1.4x. 500mm is nice, but it may be pushing the 300 f4 a bit much. You tell me.

Hey Harris -

That's great stuff for a lousy day. I really like the little green guy. Did you catch a bit of sun or use flash? The detail and colors are great.

FWIW I don't think using the TC17 with the 300/4 is pushing it if the light is halfway decent. Based on these shot you were above the threshhold.

Harris, these look great! I don't see any degradation in quality with the 1.7. I may have to look into that one. I'm using the Tamron 1.4 but I'd still like a little longer (except for flying birds at the rookery ;) ).

Sorry I couldn't hook up with you today but I just stayed local. Regards to Mary ~ she's a hoot! ;)

Hi Harris,

Super photos (as usual for you!)

Is the Osprey nest the one just over the bridge to Merritt Island where we saw the Ospreys with the fish and then mating?

Thanks Gordon, the sun came out a bit, so I ran to the osprey nest, and saw this little greenie in the trees below.
