  1. hi Anne, welcome to JungleDragon!

    Normally I'd point a new member to how they should improve sharing, with species, location, and details included. But you did all of that from the start, without any guidance. Remarkable!

    As a warm welcome to the community, this photo is promoted to the homepage.

    1. Hi Ferdy,

      This is because each of my photos goes through a software that helps me (sort, tags, geolocalisation) before I publish them here or on my site. Thank you for this warm welcome.
