Floating hide

Floating hide gives us completely new possibilities in bird photography. We are not tied up in one place (as in the case of stationary hides) but we can move. It is really beneficial – we can slowly follow our photo subjects and we can search for unusual points of view. The perspective is also very attractive – the lens can be placed several cm above the water surface.
However, the photo session is demanding and can be tiring (especially in shallow water) as the interior of the hide is not spacious and besides we have to move with it. We walk on the bottom and push the platform, where the photo camera and lens is attached. 80-100 cm is the optimum water depth but you can manage even with 20 cm.
