    Stunning shots Tim, I didn't get a good Egret like you did the other day.

    that 2X can sing on the 300VR can't it buddy, but the operator has most to do with the combo's success.
     
  3. Very nice images. Great details.
     
  4. great shots Tim

    glad to see someone else is putting the 2x to great use. There are alot of people who say its not very good but as you have demonstrated, in the right hands and with a great lens, its a very capable performer.

    best wishes

    Colin.
     
  5. WOW, nice shootin! I thought a 2x TC would give soft images, maybe I should think about one too? Love that greenie!
     
  6. Tim,
    you've proven my thoughts about that lens/TC combo wrong
    well done, sir
    and.... even a FLIP
    wonderful

    thanks for sharing these with us
     
  7. Fantastic shots. That combo seems to work real well. Nicely done.
