Adding images
Hello, Michel. Thank you for posting these images. ID Request is the correct place to post your photos only if you are uncertain as to the ID (in which case, adding a question mark at the end of the title might be more appropriate). If, however, you are sure of the ID and simply wish to add your images to the guide page, then in the future you should follow these directions which I have copied from the Help page for Images:

If you're confident about the identity, you should feel free to submit the image directly to the appropriate place in the guide. First navigate to the best place in the guide. Searching for the scientific name and restricting the results to guide pages might be the quickest way to get there. Once you're in the right spot, click the images tab and you'll see all the images for that spot along with an "add image" link just like for "ID Request". Proceed like you would for "ID Request".

As you have already submitted your images to ID Request, if you wish to move them you should select the "tag all" link found below your image post and then navigate to the correct species page within the guide. Then, click on the Images tab and select the "move tagged images" link to complete the move of your images.

thank you for the info. I was never too sure about placing these on the species page.

More info
If your uncertainty about placing images directly in the guide is based on not being sure as to the identification, then it never hurts to simply double-check by going through ID Request. If, on the other hand, you are wondering whether your images will be useful or wanted by the community, there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to this question. My personal opinion is that if the image is of good quality and there are not currently several pages of images for that species already in the guide, then go ahead and submit it! The worst that can happen is that some editor may decide to override your decision in the future and send the image to Frass -- hopefully not without giving you an explanation first!

More info
I sent this one because there are only 2 images of this sp., both from CA. Lots of other Orangetips however.
Thanks for your advice
Michel Kleinbaum
