Little Egret dancing

When they fish it often looks like they're performing a wild improvised dance...

It has become common knowledge here that shooting long distances over water isn't adviseable as atmospheric distortions can easily ruin the shots.
While I think that's true more often than not I also think it's allways worth a try as it can occasionally work out well too.

Below shots were taken with my Canon fd500/4.5L with added Oly MC14 at 700mm f5.6 (f8 with TC) on Pana G80 and are heavily cropped. The last two shots were cropped to 1200px high equalling 4023mm 35FOV. All are 100%.
-In my place birds are shy and keep their distance. 

I'm aware that if you look at above pics on a big high res monitor they might not suffice. -However, thats about the max I can get from my gear and PP under such circumstances at the moment.

And I'm still learning to MF! 



C&C allways welcome!
