All images were shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark IV and Olympus M.100–400mm F5.0–6.3 lens + MC-20 2x Teleconverter on 29 December 2023. This was a fun experiment, as it was my first proper photo walk with the teleconverter attached and it was very difficult fast motion in overcast conditions. I could have taken it off for some of the later shots at shorter focal lengths, but decided to leave it attached to see what I could achieve.
