Ask any wildlife photographer, and they'll tell you that although their extreme tele-zoom lenses can help get a great shot, the most important element is knowing your subject and how to act around it. I agree with Thomas, I wouldn't try a teleconverter, I'd just be patient and try to get much closer in, 50 meters just isn't close enough.

I agree about knowing the subject. I took this handheld with the kit 18-105 lens zoomed to 70mm. Because the subject was native to a local park I think it was happy to be close to people as they were viewed as a source of food. It pretty much followed me around until it decided I didn't have anything to feed it.
