Not all nature images are created equally.
In a world in which our nature is already under enormous pressure, in unprecedented levels, from the impacts of habitat destruction, encroaching urbanization, hunting, feral predators and climate change resulting in extreme weather and fire events, among others, the onus is on us as nature photographers to ensure that we minimize the impact we, ourselves, have on birdlife. The least we can do as photographers is not add ourselves to that list.
