What does the back side of Haystack Rock look like?
Then the Lord God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate it and keep it. -- Genesis 2:15
God has given mankind a commission to use and care for the earth. This means that we do not do things that harm the environment or wildlife just for our pleasure. The filming of this Haystack fly-around was done at a time of year, and in a way such that there was no harm done. Filming was done in the winter when there were no birds nesting on the rock. The lighting would have been much better, and would have been on all sides of the rock at noon in June, but that's also when there are birds on the rock. In addition, the drone was kept a significant distance away from the rock and a very high resolution camera was used. This provided the option for optical zooming, while staying a long distance from the rock.
