During bird-watching outings, it's quite normal to come across photography enthusiasts in parks armed with long lenses. Wang recalls there's one such individual who used to entice birds with insects. Whenever she encountered the man, Wang would engage in conversation. Eventually, he transitioned to being a wildlife conservation photographer. When the man saw people cutting reeds to attract birds in the park, he would alert park authorities.

"Many bird-watchers are also photographers. They can influence others who solely focused on taking pictures. Some of them start with photography and gradually get drawn into bird-watching, ultimately becoming individuals who both observe and photograph birds," Wang says, adding that she believes this is a growing trend in birdwatching.
