I was using my D300 with a 300mmf2.8 VRII and a 2.0III teleconverter, this weekend. I was mainly shooting a flycatcher on a fence post. I was getting some nice handheld shots. A Northern Harrier was flying across the field and I switched to the hawk. Unfortunately, I could not get a good focus on the bird. I took many shots and All were way out of focus or very soft. Does the teleconverter affect the focus or was I doing something wrong? I am new to birds in flight. I will attach a picture. Thanks.
