We do have some storage space for TN-Butterflies so as long as most members are 
using a photo sharing site, if we get a few attachments it won't cause a 
problem. It was the large number of BAMONA record photos that was causing the

I've been sending my photos as attachments, but will stop if it uses up space 
the Archives. I guess I was sending attachments because I don't have a website 
where mine can be viewed. I usually shoot in high res, so to post them online 
(so it doesn't take forever to load them), I have to downsize them 
which takes too much time unless see something unusual, funny, etc. Then I 
watermark everything I put online, which takes more time.

I just read people's posts mainly. If I see a species on there that I would 
really like to see for myself, I don't really need a photo, but date, time and 
location. If I know that the species is flying, I can look for it myself in the 

I think it is an individual choice if someone wants to send their photos just 
the BAMONA administrator for verification of a county record or to the TN-Butt 
group as a whole. Some may feel that they are new to butterflying and don't 
their opinions scrutinized as to what the species is.  BAMONA and 
are really two separate entities with overlapping interests.

I actually have learned quite a few good tips on here. I hope those who are 
comfortable with sharing photos and expertise will continue to take time to do 
so. I like hearing the news and seeing field trip reports about who is seeing 
what and where. I will do the same if I think it is something of interest to
