Angela. You are obviously much more proficient in English than I am in Spanish. We've lived in Ecuador for 34 years, but out in the jungle with the tribes. We speak 3 tribal dialects, but I know my Spanish isn't the best. If I want to know the species, I leave it as "unidentified." Many pull up spottings and only look at "unidentified," so if you show it already identified, many will pass it by.

Tukup I'm learning about the logistics of this platform, so I have many questions. Today I learned to tag favorites and chose some missions to start adding data. I'm concerned since many of the spottings I have, I have them up to genus, so I do not know whether to place them as unidentified or identified, bye.

Hola Angela. La mayoría de nosotros no somos fotógrafos profesionales. Ese es uno de los propósito del Proyecto Noé, involucrar a los no profesionales. Hay algunos profesionales, y realmente disfruto sus fotos, pero la mayoría son como tú y yo. Siga enviando tus fotos, con algunos detalles, por supuesto :-)
