Thanks and thats another awesome shot from your side. Are you still doing it with a P&S cam ? Really sharp bro. How do you get so close to them ?

First one is definitely wrong time of the day (PP might bring life to it), second one is too good.

My test shot with Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 coupled with a Sigma 2x Teleconverter. So this is 400mm, f/5.6, 1/350, ISO-400 on a cloudy day (today). I find this perfect to my birding needs, so more birds to come soon !

Thats clean shot from Teleconverter. OT:Can you suggest a good teleconverter for my Canon 55-250 IS ?

OT: I am not very sure Pawan, I have heard of best results from a combination of teleconverter with fast lenses (wide apertures like 2.8), 55-250 is a kit lens as I understand, so I doubt about the output. You could try one from some canon users or cross check for user reviews. Please post it on the DSLR thread so that we remain free of clutter here.

That is a very sharp shot @Shajufx. I think this combination will definitely work for you.
I have a tamron 1.4x teleconverter. I tried coupling it with my ordinary 70-300 lens. I works, but I do not get sharp pics. As you rightly said, teleconverters in general work best with fast lenses.

OT:Yes, I have seen plenty of very sharp shots on flickr, but the combination should be perfect, otherwise it can be an eye sore. So, I chose both (lens and tele) from Sigma, perfect quick focus, correct metering and readings. Its a 400mm f/5.6 lens for 1 fifth of the price, I cant ask for more !

Its 100% worth the money. Last post begs for a complete image with the feet

Again 200mm, f/2.8 at work !

Haha... It looks rather confused with your actions!

The waste lying towards the top-right is distracting my eyes though! Just a humble suggestion.

Two from the saturday meet . Been too lazy these days, it's helping me in a way, forcing me to process and post the best ones only .

I like the centric compo in this shot..

Fire Bug, not sure if that's the right id..

Both were shot with the 50mm f1.8, one mounted normally the other one with a reverse lens mount.

I never knew 'reverse' action could be so beautiful and sharp ! Now I know why you were stuck to that place for a while .

Remember this guy ?

Incidentally, that was the first photo I took of that guy . Tried other compositions, but not as good. And oh yes, I remember this guy.
