EmmaLeeAnne, that's just my standard welcome message -- no suggestion at all that you didn't take that lovely picture! Sorry for the confusion!

Hello EmmyLeeAnne, and Welcome to the Project Noah community! We hope you like the website as much as we do. There are many aspects to the site and community. The best way to get started is to read the FAQs at where you can find all the tips, advice and "rules" of Project Noah. You, like the rest of the community, will be able to suggest IDs for species that you know (but that have not been identified), and make useful or encouraging comments on other users' spottings (and they on yours). There are also "missions" you can join and add spottings to. See Note that most missions are "local". Be sure not to add a spotting to a mission that was outside of mission boundaries or theme. Each mission has a map you may consult showing its range. We also maintain a blog archive where we have posted previous articles from specialists from different geographical areas and categories of spottings, as well as wildlife "adventures.” So enjoy yourself, share, communicate, learn. See you around!
welcome to Project Noah. This is a great community for sharing your own photos of living organisms. Images taken from the internet (like this one) or other sources are not allowed here since they are protected by copyright laws. Please take a few minutes and read through the FAQ page to find the rules for posting.
