Moved from Moths.

I've put
gathering_2013 into the text. just having it as your personal marker does not make it sjow up in anybodyelse's search. Happy holidays Alice!

I didn't realize that. Should I go back and start adding it to my other photos as well? I think I pretty marked all my posted photos from the gathering via the personal marker. Happy holidays to you too!

Actually, gathering tag also OK elsewhere...
I've been putting the gathering_2013 tag in the "Identifier" field, and they've all turned up in the right place.

BTW, great photo Alice. One of the largest sphinx moths in the west, and beautifully patterned!

I'm not a moth expert, but I think you have the ID sure looks like a match for Margarethe's below:

Awesome moth! One on the top of my list to see next time I'm in AZ...
