  1. Stephen, I'm obliged to say that even if it was not a species intro, a great capture is still always welcome. I just want to clarify that multiple photos and observations of a species is always a great thing. It enriches the species record!

    Plus, if you're looking for a competitive angle, even when not a species intro, your photo can rise in the ranks of the species and become the cover photo. And there's more...it can then walk up the tree, and become the cover photo for the genus, family, order, class, division, kingdom.
