Doesn't look so big until you get up close. Pittsburgh Zoo. Nikon D7100 300mm f2.8 VR + TC17II on tripod.
That's a pretty big tongue as well!
A bit soft since I was shooting wide open with the TC17II. I now know to crank up the ISO and stop down to about f7.0. Pittsburgh Zoo. Nikon D7100 300mm f2.8 VR + TC17II on tripod.
Excuse me, is this flower taken?

California sea lion popping out of the water
I worked hard to get the focus right at this short distance with the shallow depth of field. Back button focus and AF-C were useful here. Pittsburgh Zoo. Nikon D7100 300mm f2.8 VR on tripod.
Black swan, eye closeup
Lighting tricky with deep shadows from strong overhead light. Shadow detail improved in Lightroom. Pittsburgh Zoo. Nikon D7100 300mm f2.8 VR + TC17II on tripod. Even though this is shot wide open, the distance must be in the sweet spot for the lens/teleconverter package.
Snow leopard
Shot through fencing and tree branches, which softens the image. Deep shade as well! Pittsburgh Zoo. Nikon D7100 300mm f2.8 VR + TC17II on tripod.
