Great shots Krisbell.

This image has been posted on another thread, taken with 5dmk3, cropped a fair bit, but still shows how good this combination is. Love it.

Finally got  chance to play a bit more with the 300 f/2.8 ii and the 2xTCiii (I've actually bee spending too much time with my real job).  I was really hoping to get the recent Super Moon but we had amazing storms and clouds obscuring the view.  Finally, the sky cleared after a couple of nights and I shot this.  I was so excited that I forgot my remote and used the 10 second delay, instead.  Some uprez, cropping and convert to B&W with Nik and here it is.  Maybe not the best but I've got about zero experience with any astro-photography so I am pleased.
5d MkIV; Eos-M5 and too many lenses; 430 EXii, 430 EXiii-RT, Flashpoint V860ii-C and a lot of stuff.

One of my first attempts with this combo, I was on the fence with the 2x 111 or 1.4 X 111
Pleasantly surprised
Very nice photo!

I had a very tame osprey this morning - I was able to get within about 30 feet in my mobile blind - aka car :):

CPS Score: 111 points, those 0 and 1 point items really add up

I had my first outing with the 300/28 II + 2XTCIII  this afternoon since coming back from Canada on Tuesday where I was using the Tamron 150-600mm. The Canon feels a bit heavier! Here are two mugshots of an Egyptian goose. Why can't I see those fantastic bee eaters or have a bird of prey come and sit next to me?

300 F/2.8L IS (Mark 1) + Sigma 2x TC, 1/800, F/11, ISO 1250, 5DMIII
Shot from about 10-15 ft.  Really like the MFD of this combination vs the bare 600mm.
1DIV, 5DsR, M3 and too many lenses to list.
Too much time, too little gear...scratch that, reverse it.

Lovely shot there.
If you debate with a fool onlookers can find it VERY difficult to tell the difference.
