Long Little Bittern neck from long way with long lens

Australian Little Bittern (Ixobrychus dubius) stretches his long neck toward breakfast in Tyto's main lagoon. Missed subsequent strike. But picture worth noting: Canon 5DIII from 70 metres, with 1.4 and 2.0 converters stacked on 400mm lens, for 1120mm. Extremely fiddly, sensitive manual focus in live view. Wifi shutter release.

Much easier shooting Salty down the road at Cattle Creek from half the distance.
