Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!

Good news beaker98. The photos posted in 2006 are considered for the best photo of 2016 mission, even if they are taken in another year.

Thanks Caleb and Luis! Your comments are always appreciated. Luis, I did not add this to that mission because I took the photo in 2015. Does it go by date taken or date submitted? Thanks for the suggestion.
