Baiting Wildlife
In reply to nzmacro, Jan 16, 2013

In the article comments:

"Interesting inages,indeed, but too bad you chose to bait the owls.
The practice is illegal in many jursdictions and, very often, baited owls lose their natural fear of humans and cars and experience increased mortality as the grow to associate humans and cars with food."

"Exactly Mark. Getting the picture at the expense of the subject is NOT nature photography. And not admitting, or divulging the obvious baiting/using a lure on fishing poleā€¦.guilty by silence. I am glad I choose to photograph birds without such disregard for the subject.

Unfortunately, in bird photography, ethics has gone out the window with many photographers such as this. And being showcased on this site might be something Steve should reconsider."

Aren't those good points?
