A wildlife photographer who resorts to baiting, cajoling or coercing his/her subjects, just for the sake of a photograph is really nothing more than a circus trainer, bribing animals to perform for him/her. The internet abounds with camera-trap images where the subject is sniffing something right in front of the camera, or has just grabbed some prey that was conveniently located and tethered. Don't be one of those. Rise to the challenge of creating imagery that has absolutely no impact on your subject. I promise you, it is far more challenging, and thus, far more rewarding.
