I feel really bad that I didn't get to join everyone in the Smokies. I was packed up and ready to go and had some family issues that came up at the last moment. Maybe next time when the gathering is near I'll get to join you all.

Captions are good.
Captions with last names are better still.

 
Because you replied to our comment,
we can no longer edit it, so we moved it up into the image remarks and added our last names. But we wouldn't presume to post others' last names. Those who are editors can add their last names if they choose. Non-editors can just let someone know if they would like their last name posted. At least that's a start on meeting your request.

 
Thanks.
Sorry about placement of my comment.

How about their Bug Guide names? That's how most of us know them, and nobody seems bashful about that.
