I spotted this lovely group at a small local reserve - after witnessing the path of destruction others had left in order to get their image - I added a TC to my lens and resolutely took my photo without leaving the footpath.

Another beautiful image. Shame that others don't appreciate the delicacy of nature and prioritise their needs first. Well done.
Make your life spectacular!

Another beautiful image.
It is sad to see how that some photographers at the cost of getting a shot
may not really consider the beauty of what they want to capture with the camera ...

We live in a beautiful world, what a shame we have to share it with destructive barbarians...... Well done, You!

Love the grouping of flowers - and your respect for the scene. It's so easy to forget and trample.

Your diligence is much admired, as is this beautiful result. The other's behaviour that you describe give photographers a bad name, sadly.
