Sarah McPherson’s article on selfies (Selfies: the unseen shame, August 2019) was an eye-opener. It informed me of this relatively less-known scourge that people who would recoil at harming wildlife unwittingly indulge in. I have never done so, but only because I do not like taking selfies – my photography is usually of landscapes. Since subscribing to this magazine, I am attracted to photographing more animals and, thanks to the article, I now know how to do so safely and without causing wildlife the slightest distress. This article also prompted me to set up a monthly donation to an international animal welfare
organisation – not much, but I reckon every little helps. Marc Delaney, via email
