If you are shooting a small subject with a macro setup and all of a sudden, another "friendly" photographer whom you do not know just position his/her lens in front of your lens, thereby blocking your view, what would you do? What would be a good way of presenting your displeasure with such "friendly" behavior?

Nicely and politely tell him that he is blocking you and that after you have taken your shot you will go for another shot.

Most folks wouldn't be that stupid, if they were they'd get told to "oi mate eff off'
