As a person who has a full time job and a life beyond my phone, it also takes time to upload and edit my photography. I can and will update and add more photos when I get the chance.

I have seen far worse and more blurry photos on here. If you think I stole it come out and say it instead of badgering. You are making me feel very unwelcome as a member, which is sad because I think this is a great resource. I have about twenty pictures of this bear and about 15 more of the wolf, who if he hadn't had mange I'm sure we never would have got close to!
I thought it would be nice to post pictures at a time closer to when I saw the bear and wolf as they are awesome and amazing sightings to share. Publicly questioning your members photographs is Not a responsible or constructive way to ensure the validity of the photographs. I highly recommend in future that you send a pm and simply request additional photos of the same subject, it would be far less accusatory and insulting to your members.

Hi Becca, if you photographed the viewfinder on your camera I assume you will also have higher quality original photos that you took with your camera at the time. We would appreciate it if you would replace this & your wolf images with the photos you took with your camera as we do not accept screen shots here. Thanks :)

I took a picture of my viewfinder on my camera. For both this one and my wolf pic.

Hello. This image is quite blurry and it has been cropped. There are some graphics on the lower right. This looks like a scan. Can you confirm again that this is your original photo as you did when you ticked the content box that said so when you created this spotting?
