thumb Canon 5D mark II or 1D mark III for wildlife photography?

I have dreamt about a full-frame DSLR for a while and was decided to get one after Canon 5D mark II was announced last year.

I thought that this will not happen with the simple bird hide I made from cheap masking net that I placed close to the Kingfisher burrow at the end of the May. The reason was simple - to let the birds get used to the hide while I was away for one month. I expected to use the hide as soon as I come back at the beginning of July...

thumbSkimmer II – ground pod for wildlife photography

The common rule in the photography about the need to make pictures of live subjects from the level of their sight forces us to go as low as possible with the camera – especially in the case of birds, which move down on the ground or float on the water...
