Hi FotisAngel and welcome to Project Noah! You have a wonderful collection of spottings so far.

Since you are fairly new here, it would be a good idea to read through the FAQ page for general guidelines for posting.

We ask that you please not post in all capital letters. Additionally, please put the common name in the first box if it has one. (For example, this dragonfly is called the Violet Dropwing). Scientific names are written like this: Trithemis annulata, first name capitalized, second lower case. So this would be
Violet Dropwing (Common Name)
Trithemis annulata (Scientific Name)

If you want to add the sex to the common name, that's ok: Violet Dropwing, male (or similar).
All insects, arachnids and crustaceans (anything with an exoskeleton) belong in the Arthropods section. The Others section is for organisms like jellyfish, starfish, snails, slugs, etc. I have moved some of your images to the correct section for you.

I hope this helps. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
