Hi Daniele. I understand. I can move them to the edge

Congratulations on your nomination Masumi!
Just another kind reminder about watermarks on your images: could you please make sure they are placed along the edge of pictures as to fit in with our guidelines. We would love to feature more of your spottings but obtrusive watermarks are attracting negative comments both from voting rangers and on our social media pages. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
From our FAQ page:
"Can I add a watermark to my photos?
• You are allowed to add a watermark to the photos you share but we request that this is unobtrusive and does not dominate the image in any way. "

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!
