Many thanks for confirming the ID of the Cape Vultures. It's something I really should have known - I lived under them for 15 months - but it was a jolly long time ago! JackyR 00:27, 27 September 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Hello, Accipiter!
Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:


2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations").

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

Thanks & a further question[edit]

Thanks for the identification of Larus occidentalis. Perhaps you can make a similar identification for these two:

Thanks in advance. - Jmabel ! talk 23:08, 28 July 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Jmabel, without a look on the upper side this is very difficult. Do you have a picture which shows anything of the upper side, or do you remember the color of the upper side of wings or back? Were they grey or black? Was anything black on the primaries? Yours, --Accipiter (talk) 21:05, 30 July 2009 (UTC)[reply]

File:Straßenleuchte mit Greifvogel.JPG[edit]

Hallo, kannst Du mir vielleicht helfen, wen ich da schließlich doch noch fotografiert habe. Flog mit lauten Rufen zunächst kreisend über dem Stadtteil - aber bis ich mal die Kamera klar hatte. :-( Gruß, --4028mdk09 (talk) 09:49, 24 October 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Das ist ein Mäusebusard. Gruß, --Accipiter (talk) 14:15, 9 November 2010 (UTC)[reply]
Danke und Gruß, --4028mdk09 (talk) 19:25, 9 November 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Darf ich Dich[edit]

noch einmal um einen Gefallen bitten? Ich bin unsicher, ob ich File:Rheininsel Ketsch Fringilla coelebs.JPG richtig bestimmt habe. Gruß, --4028mdk09 (talk) 18:30, 12 April 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Ja, Buchfink (Männchen) ist richtig. Und entschuldige die späte Antwort, ich gucke hier zu selten. Gruß, --Accipiter (talk) 23:29, 13 May 2011 (UTC)[reply]
Vielen Dank! Gruß, --4028mdk09 (talk) 05:12, 14 May 2011 (UTC)[reply]
Kannst Du mir auch hier noch einmal helfen? Ich bin mal wieder ratlos - oder ist es am Ende doch eine de:Feldlerche? Gruß, --4028mdk09 (talk) 18:49, 12 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]
Sieht nicht nach Feldlerche aus. Hast du da noch mehr Aufnahmen? Übrigens: kennst du diese Seite? Hier gucken mehr Leute und ich auch öfter als hier. Gruß, --Accipiter (talk) 19:27, 13 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]
Zunächst: danke für Deine Hilfe - ich hoffe, ich nerve nicht. Eine - wenn auch ähnlich schlechte - Aufnahme habe ich noch, nur leider im Moment nicht greifbar. Ich werde sie in der nächsten Woche hochladen. Gruß, --4028mdk09 (talk) 13:58, 14 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Großlibelle 1org gedreht2 VPJungfernheide 070708.jpg[edit]

Dieses sehr schöne Bild ist als Brachytron pratense beschrieben. Mir sieht es aber eher nach Aeshna cyanea aus. Könnte das sein? Gibt es noch weitere Bilder von dem Exemplar, vielleicht etwas mehr von oben? Schönen Gruß --G-u-t (talk) 07:36, 21 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Hi G-u-t, die Bestimmung als Brachytron pratense ist natürlich Unfug. Ich hatte die als Aeshna sp. zur Bestimmung hochgeladen, die Umbenennung wurde hier vorgenommen. Die Art wurde damals in der Tat als Aeshna cyanea bestimmt, das ist ein Weibchen. Es gibt von dem Tier auch Ganzkörperfotos. Gruß, --Accipiter (talk) 21:14, 21 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Wrong wisent[edit]

Hi Accipiter.

Many thanks for your correction, the File:Bison bonasus européen wisent MNHN.jpg is now renamed as a Syncerus caffer. It is my mistake, but I'm affraid it is the mistake of the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris too, because of the wrong plate on the pedestal of this skeleton.
I'm trying now to delist this picture from the labelled "valued image" list for the same reason (when done, I'll re-nominate it in the relevant category, because it is the best picture of an african buffalos skull IMO.)
Anyway, thanks again.--Jebulon (talk) 18:03, 14 November 2011 (UTC)[reply]

I use one of your photos[edit]

Hello Rainer!

You can see directly in the follow links and clic over "Siguiente" ("Next") several times:

If you wish, you can send me some letters or/and a photo for your "contributor profile" in Animalandia (In your profile there is a link to your flickr gallery):

I want show to my students (and so everybody) that Animalandia is make for "real person", and I can tell them about "generosity", "share" and other similar words that they use very few...

This is my "contributor profile" and others, for example:

In the future, I use more of your photos, I sure!

Thank you for the licence and, of course, for your splendid photos!! Regards! Fernando Lisón

Magst Du mir helfen?[edit]
