    I visited India in October-November last year. I had been looking forward to using my Olympus 300mm PRO in India. I was not disappointed. All the photos were taken with 1.4x TC.

    The Western Ghats esp. in Raigadh district are really great for wildlike/bird viewing. When I was in school and college we used to hike there frequently. Sadly, I haven't been back in 20+ years. Time for a visit the next time I am in Mumbai.

    Excellent shots and what colours and details they have. Impressive shots and would love to get to see these.

    All the best.
