  2. Hi, Danny, we haven't heard from you for a while, I hope you are doing fine. We are currently trying to link photos to specific countries as much as we can. Some of your photos are geotagged, but not all. I was wondering if all your photos uploaded to JungleDragon were taken in the USA? Posted 4 years ago
