    1. Thank you so much Patomarazul! I think this is the best photograph I've ever taken. Perhaps it's because caterpillars are so slow! Posted one year ago, modified one year ago

    1. Deb, explaining a small quirk of the system: it's best to use the "reply" link below somebody's comment if you're directly responding to them. Reason for this is that otherwise they will not get a notification and may never see your response.

      If you're the photo owner (like you are in this case), you would get notifications for all comments, even non-replies, but this is not true for drive-by commenters.

      1. Thank you, sometimes I do this on my mobile, sometimes I respond on my computer. That probably explains my inconsistencies. Posted one year ago
        1. No worries, it's mostly a system quirk. Will fix it somewhere in the future so it's more intuitive. Posted one year ago
          1. You've done a great job on this site! I do have a question, how can I put my own photo in the profile square? I haven't been able to figure that out.

            1. Thanks for the kind words.

              To set your own profile photo, you need to go to https://www.gravatar.com. There you can create an account and associate it with the email address you also used for JungleDragon. Once you have an account there, you can upload any image there.

              A few minutes later, this will automatically reflect here, but also any other website making use of this system.
