I don't usually make whole peanuts available to the little birds,this one must have escaped whilst filling up the feeders...nothing escapes their beady little eyes..& he's not letting go either!
Love the expression here...& another go with the 1.4X TC

F5.6 aperture priority
1/160th sec with tripod,weighted down to avoid mirror slap
ISO 200
Spot metering
F/L 300mm + 1.4X TC
Raw file converted in C1LE
Touch of a crop (but nothing drastic) curves adjusted & border added in CS2.

Thankyou for taking the time to look.This is my 300th upload on site,your support is overwhelming!

Janet, this is such a beauty.

I played with a 2x converter on the Nikon 300mm lens today but no joy at all, all dark and very noisey every picture went in the recycle bin - sob sob,so sticking with a standard 300mm Smile
