looking for a video of fluorine reacting[edit]

Can anyone help here...or point me to more places to ask for help?

I want a video (or perhaps a photo) of fluorine gas reacting with something. There is nothing PD (or even that I can think of as an easy donation). Looking for something like in the videos below. Will go into a Wiki Featured Article Candidate. Either someone to make it for us or who has it.

--Gauravjuvekar (talk) 17:53, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

For use in Lime water. This image is perfect except for the little problem that it's not free. --Gauravjuvekar (talk) 09:45, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

I suggest you contact the author and ask him/her to release the picture under a free license. --Leyo 10:50, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Amphibians[edit]
  • « Triton de Blasius », hybrid amphibian found only in France, especially in Mayenne, for main article. --92.155.150.62 01:07, 7 August 2013 (UTC)

Birds[edit]
If anyone can take a picture of the dodo head/skull and foot in the Oxford Museum, it would be very nice for the article. Also, if anyone comes across the National Museum in Prague, there's a fake dodo with some bones under it, a photo of these bones would be appreciated. FunkMonk (talk) 19:03, 11 June 2012 (UTC)
Arachnids[edit]
  • Latrodectus pallidus: From this animal, there is only one picture, and a bad stamp design. Since one could still, better pictures or more pure, I suggest, for example, before continuing to use than this, this and this picture.--Prianteltix (talk) 12:53, 11 August 2010 (UTC)
  • Peacock spider (Maratus volans): There is no picture of this spider on any wiki project. There are good pictures on this site, however they are quite possibly copyrighted, as stated on the bottom of this site. --Archangel (talk) 19:56, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
    • Archangel, I have taken care of business! I have negotiated with the king of peacock spider photos, Dr. Jurgen Otto, and convinced him to graciously release one of his images at reduced resolution with a license allowing it to be used on Commons. The image is File:MalePeacockSpider.jpg and I have now added it to the articles on Maratus as well as Maratus volans. I think I picked a good one-- and I hope you like it as well! Perhaps we can consider this request to be officially fulfilled, yes? -KDS444 (talk) 10:05, 22 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Indian red scorpion (Hottentotta tamulus): This site looks good, but pictures are copyrighted.--Archangel (talk) 14:00, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

There are numerous different varieties of hamsters so if you have a pet that doesn't look like any of those already on Commons, please upload a picture of it. Also, if you have a better quality image of one of the varieties already on Commons, please upload it.

  • There is a lack of imagery / video of human female defecation, as well as a lack of video of female urination. I think these would be useful in respective articles on various projects. 166.20.224.10

I have written to 4 people who had images and have not gotten a donation. Actually it is hard to find that many even non-free images. Please help me. I am usually pretty damned resourceful...but this is kicking my ass. give me some ideas or help...TCO (talk) 04:34, 31 December 2011 (UTC)

We have this image on the Wiki article for NaOH. I want a comparable picture for HF, fluorine, etc. articles. HF burns are very noteworthy.
  • I'm after nice, brightly lit, non blurry close up pictures like: this [1] (no need to photograph whole face- just mouth), this [2] and this [3]. They will be used on the trismus and temporomandibular joint dysfunction articles to illustrate physiotherapy techniques for these disorders. It would be great if someone could make me some photos like this and upload under a license that won't get deleted- public domain or the normal one. Thanks, and it's definitely worth some barnstars ;-) Lesion (talk) 10:47, 28 May 2013 (UTC)
