Sympecma fusca[edit]

The photograph you posted of Sympecma fusca is a picture of a female Ischnura elegans. There are a lot of variations in their habitus and this seems to be a B type female (distinct shoulder stripe). It is obvious it is not a Sympecma fusca because of the narrow straight stripes on the thorax and the lower appendages, overall shape, etc..

Hello, MichaD!

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:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

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]]
[[Category:Comets]]

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"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

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.

Phoenicurus_ochruros_1 F http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Phoenicurus_ochruros_female.jpg


The brochure will have four brackets. - Broochura a pocket to take the route - A brochure to present the day of inauguration

- Schedules for species identification - Panels that will be fixed in the Land As i said the Free Access will be everything :)

If you are the author and provide us that photo, we will refer your name in the bibliografy and we need to know what´s the name you want on the bibliography? Michael Apel?


If it´s possible please respond to ritasoraia2001@hotmail.com or rita.neves@cm-lisboa.pt or here on Wikimedia.

Bild Nyhavn, Copenhagen[edit]

Dear Michael,

I'm a French graphic designer and I am working for a special issue on Copenhagen for an associative monthly magazine. I am interresting in your wonderful photo of Copenhagen (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Nyhavn_MichaD.jpg). Do you allow me to use it freely for the cover of this magazine. Of course your name, Michael Apel, will be credited.

Thanks a lot for your reply. Best regards.

--Elzeard Bouffier (talk) 19:33, 5 March 2011 (UTC)
Dear Elzeard,
you are free to use it in accordance to the CC-BY-SA. This mean you can use the image free of charge as long as I am credited.
But for a cover I'd guess you'll have to add captions and probably need significant cropping too. This means your derivative work of the cover will have to be licensed under the CC-BY-SA as well.
I hope that answers your question. Don't hesitate to contact me again if there are any further question or uncertainties.
Regards, --MichaD | Michael Apel (talk) 22:32, 8 March 2011 (UTC)


Dear Michael,

Thanks for your answer and all details given. I will crop the photo to fit the vertical format, I need also to enlarge it. Do you have this photo in higher size ?

Cordialement, --Elzeard Bouffier (talk) 22:54, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

I do have an uncropped 21mp version of the photo. I would kindly request a voucher copy of the magazine in exchange though. --MichaD | Michael Apel (talk) 10:50, 9 March 2011 (UTC)


I will be happy to send you a copy of the magazine. You can send me the picture and your postal address at: elzeardbouffier@rocketmail.com

Hi Sally
Thank you for your interest in my image.
You could use the image free of charge in accordance to the listed licenses on the image description page http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Calopteryx_virgo_male.jpg
We would have to discuss any other license and the charge would probably depend on what circulation you are planning on.
It would be best to discuss this more directly. You can also reach me at apel at gmx dot de
