Rocky Hill, US
          

My local Peregrine flew down to a better perch and posed for me for a few shots.

Nice set Rick, the 1.7TC does a decent job with the 300mm f/4 lens. Produces a nice creamy bokeh on the background.

Thanks Richard. I have been surprised with the results I'm getting with the 1.7tc as I have read that it doesn't work well with that lens. The 1.4tc is also excellent.
