I don't see the point of doing Associations unless you are 100% certain on both identifications...very dodgy science, otherwise!
My Flickr photos...
I feel sorry for Roger here Ian as he is a good and experienced iSpotter.
I'd like to believe he was just trying the method but he will have to agree that he has given us a very poor example, (in possessing a picture of a tern and NOT the main predator of Sprats).
Otherwise I do not see what all this Interaction is about - everyone knows that terns eat fish (when they can find them) and that bees pollinate clover - don't they? (everyone knows I mean)
Most of the Interactions I see here relate to feeding, some to obvious, and well documented parasitism, but there are very few genuine revelations, even to younger members. Us oldies are never going to be impressed.
In its graphic form this feature is not yet very good, nor is it well used.
I had no great motivation in linking these two. Just keen to know what the experts might be able to tell me about what the Tern was carrying!
Sorry if that upsets anyone.
No upset at all...great to see such superb photos! I could never hope to take such clear shots of a bird in flight. :)
But, associations are for recording definite interaction between two known species...if you don't know what the species are for certain, it's pointless claiming an association.
Yes, I feel the same as Ian - you should be proud of the photos and, goodness, specially the new enlargement.
Quite importantly Roger, you are on the ball - both with the comment trail, innovations like Interactions and the possibility of modifying a post (Core Editing).
I say, well done!
