Here in southern Cali4nia most of the wild we see is in the bars, yet, if you spend some time and really look, there are non-human animals everywhere. Over the coarse of the week past I've seen rats, mice, raccoons, possums, coyotes, ducks, least Terns, northern mockingbirds, anna's humming birds and scores of song birds. A couple of months back I got on a photographing the humming birds that nest close to my home. Since then I've noticed there is a distinct change in behavior in the birds I was focused on that frequented specific feeding areas, I can't help but think they are acting differently because of my spending allot of time around them. Is it only me, or does the question of ethics extend to how we effect the world around us?
