Seems interesting. Also take a look at this from Canon - replace your flash with incense sticks!

Since this thread started off as bird portraits, here's a family portrait.
Duck shots added too for the heck of it.
5D3 and 300mm 2.8 IS
The lighting in the "family portrait" is exquisite. Very intimate
Not exotic but we can't all have humming birds and flamingos on our doorstep!
5D3 and 300mm f2.8 IS mk1 - f5 1/1000th ISO640 +2/3rds
Pigeon with anti-gravity belt! I like it!
My 5D III, pre-ordered before release so it was full price, initially under-exposed all shots by about 2/3 of a stop. It went off to Canon for repair/review, and came back within the week working fine.
Since then, it has very occasionally lost the will to focus, but turning it off and on again has cured that.
No other problems, and a real joy to use - particularly if you like low-light photography. I've certainly never regretted the decision to buy.
I keep it in silent shutter mode most of the time - the quietness is a real benefit. Sitting watching a school play when the official (commercial) photography snaps away with his noisy Nikon that can be heard across the room, and thinking I could do that so much more discretely has been a bitter-sweet experience.
