Extending to Shy Birds



These Guys are perhaps the most shy birds to approach on the flats

Here I used a Nikon 1.7X extender on the Nikon 70-200 mm VR II F / 2.8 lens; which yielded 340 mm focal range

Yesterdays light was weak at best, and with the 1.7X extender; you will only be able to open up your F- Stop to 4.8; whereas without the extender; the lens would have been able to open up to F / 2.8
