Snowy in Flight with Z 7+500PF+1.4TC
48

I was lucky enough to find our local snowy owl right before sunset.  It was great because I was the only one there.  Within a few minutes the snowy starts hunting, which is great but I still had my 1.4TC on my lens.  As the action is unfolding I'm so worried that the Z 7 is not going to be able to keep up with the teleconverter still on.  On top of that there is a 20mph wind working against me, probably why I was the only one at the beach.  The Z 7 and the 500PF were amazing with the teleconverter.  I missed only a  handful of shots out of about 30.  I feel the Z 7 works better with the teleconverter at F8 then my DSLR's.  My D810 can only take stationary shots and the D500 is usable for BIF, but I think the Z 7 is better.  Here are some pictures.

These were all taken in AF-C wide area small and VR set to normal, which helped with the wind.
