Nice one! Love the BG colors, they blend well with the bird.

Damn. I see a mkIV in my future. Although I think the 7D is a better wildlife cam than the 1DIII.

I wouldn't doubt it seeing that my 40D got more use then my 1D3 in wildlife shooting. But I have also heard that the 1d4 is not really worth the jump. Better wait till the 1d5 comes out.

Don't sell half-again as many MPs short...

Just that little bit of extra crop-ability makes a difference IMO.

Second shot is SWEET Methodical!

1DIII I find too loud for alot of wildlife, shutter slap is like church bells compared to the 7D's whispering shutter ;) Yes i can shoot stealth mode but not at decent FPS.

Yeah I get that a lot, also the better beamer flash will startle them. But the 1D3 does have a silent shutter mode but it is only single shot and not burst. I find it help full when multiple shots are not needed. The shutter sound is also quieter when shooting in live mode as well.

If only live view could focus worth a damn. Better beamer is only used for birds, trashes mammal eyes ;)

Yea, You can't even AF in live view on the 1D3 only MF. A good feature on the 1D4 I think. I know the 5D2 does and I even get the 5D2 to AF in Live view with the 2xTC @ f8, it's freaking awesome and the shots is spot on, go figure.

Great series Al.

Cicero, that Starling shot is one of the best I've seen of that bird.

Neil, your work is always outstanding.

Here are a few recent captures with the MK IV and 500L:
