I've read a few stories, and have seen some proof of people abusing insects and animals to get the photographs they want, and I'd like to talk about this practice for a bit.
Being an insect macro photographer, I spend a lot of time either A.) Trying to get the perfect shot of an insect I've photographed a zillion times, or B.) Trying to, at a minimum document an insect that I've never seen, before it hops or flies away. I do this for two reasons. Hunting and photographing insects is a hobby that I enjoy, even though I'm not all that good at it, and two, I put up all of my insect photos under a Creative Commons license so that educators, and anyone interested in insects can use my photos without worries of copyright infringement.
