A few more from my front yard, more of the usual suspects. All shots with the D3 and the 300 2.8 with 2.0 tele.

Beautiful series, Mike. I am impressed with your results. I have always heard 2x converters were less than desirable. I would be very happy with these photos.

Thanks Gray I have not been there in a while, do you ever try Bombay Hook down in DE it is getting to be the season down there soon.
Excellent series showing frequent yard visitors off very well.
Thanks
Nice batch Mike, not much around this time of year but soon the migrants will come through!
Thanks Janet, I have never had much luck capturing the migrants I sure would love to add some warblers to my photo list this fall
I want first opportunities on the 300 with the TC20 when if you decide to sell it!!!! Great series!
Thanks it is yours my friend

I have good luck with the @X on this lens only on any others it is terrible
They may be the "usual suspects", but your captures are far from ordinary. Great detail, use of light and beautiful bokeh! Well done!

Thanks Mitch this combo works great for me as long as you can stop the lens down to like 7.1 or f8 and with the high iso capabilities of the new camers that is not a problem anymore
