Looks about right, that's what you get when you change your position between the shots so the nearest can is the same size in the pictures.
If the camera was in the same position for the 24mm shot, you could crop a tiny frame from the 24mm shot and it would look like the 300mm shot, if resolution permitted.
Edit: It's of course not the same field of view. He compares the different fields of view, yes?
