Protecting Cuteness: (must read)
The way it moves, the way it communicates with parent Lapwing, watching and following this small chick of Red Wattled Lapwing is same as one sided love.
My decision of not to move further to capture more closest shot was in favor of this chick. As i was hidding and crawling towards it, it started running far from me as its parents wanted that and they are very protective with continuous piercing calls. But unfortunately it ran towards open fields, where on the other side, pack of dogs was just about to feel its presence and they would have killed it. I just moved back and went to the otherside in between dogs and this chick in order to protect it as it was not natural. Untill that chick went to a safe camouflage ..but I was involved in that and if they ate it due to me. It would have the worst experience of my life.
We photographers should never disturb them with our presence.. As this can lead a drastic change in birds and animals daily routine
