Even non-human souls respond to this respect.  The Cooper's Hawk photo 
I posted a couple of days ago (with ZERO response from the LUG) was the 
result of a few years getting to know the birds and allowing them to 
get to know me.  The hawk knows me personally and knows that I respect 
him; he perched not more than 20' from me and stayed for a half-hour 
while I waited for the light to improve.  Once I had my photos and put 
the cameras down he flew to another nearby perch.
