Hit the Brakes!

There was a new Canon 1.4x III extender wrapped under the tree for Christmas with my name on it, so first chance I had, we headed back out to Merritt Island to give this a try.


Our first stop at the refuge is always the busiest, hundreds of ducks to see, and on this day the white pelicans were out here. This one was coming in for a landing to join the flock.


There was another photographer, visting from Ohio, next to me with his 400mm lens and FF camera and we compared our images. My 200 with 1.4 extender and crop sensor camera looked a lot like his photos as far as reach went, so I was pretty pleased. Always nice to meet other photographers while out in the field.


Click on the "L" key for best viewing, Flickr always posts this size too small in the photostream. My favorite part is his feet!
