Garg ji's letter is articulating a need that many of us must have felt, also experienced by me. I second his proposal. Many times except for the sender of a pix and their brief description, other members have only the pix on our computers and accompanying note to form an opinion on an ID. As primarily a photographer, I have felt need for more pix of the plant for an ID.
Here are my suggestions : Send more than 1 pix for a good ID.
Pix 1. Original pix. Photo of plant feature that attracted attention in 1st place.
Pix 2. Close-up pix of distinguishing features of flower, leaf, fruit, seed, trunk, root etc.
JMG's suggestion. Closeup could be helpful and very impt.
Pix 3 Pix of full grown plant, tree, flower-bunch, fruits, branch etc. JMG'S suggestion.
Would be of help.
Pix 4 Pix of subject in its habitat. JMG's suggestion. Helpful.
Pix 5 Pix of any special distinguishing features.
Taking more pix will not pose a problem, since now a days memory cards with capacity in Gbs are available for taking couple of 100s of pix. Closeup/Macro is also not a problem,since almost all digicams have a macro focusing range of less than 4cm/1.5", something requiring special lenses and equipment in film-based cameras. Lastly by reducing the pix file size one can easily send more than 5 pix in 1 email. May our ID-ing become more accurate and definitive.
