After waiting a few weeks to try out my newly bought 1.4x [Thanks MadMike!] with my 70-200; I decided to go to the beach.

After just hearing them for a few minutes; I caught this guy taking a quick sip.

Handheld while standing:

And here's a 100% crop; nothing done except a little fill light in RSE
