    So, I tried my 2x TC on the 500 f/4 II. The AF has issues (lots of hunting)...but when locked on...I am not complaining....

    Excellent detail as expected!! Pre-focusing and setting the focus limiting switch both help tremendously if you are working within a known distance. You can prevent the system from extreme searching. The results are worth it....great images at 1000mm.

    Thanks for the tips. I wasn't thinking about the prefocus points. The distances are pretty set. The HB feeder is down to the right of the perch for my main bird feeders.

    Can anyone spot the puffin hiding amongst the Common Murres?

    I think I found him, but it was harder than I expected. Great picture Stephen.

    Thanks for looking! Glad some people are enjoying the search. I wonder if we all see the same puffin...I suspect there are more than one, but may not have the distinctive beak/feet visible (but I know one does anyway). Personally I wish I had stopped down a bit to improve depth of field / sharpness as some of the birds are a bit blurry. But I was trying to keep the iso lower but the shutter speed high since I was on a wildly pitching boat (one of the kids got seasick actually).
