The unique tag phonecam1 is Invitation ONLY for the time being (I will ask you to add it)
But please feel free to add Phonecam to any posts where you use one - this will be useful for stage two of the project

I am not very experienced with phone cams - I'd MUCH prefer, and always use, a dedicated camera.
But the phone is very useful for field-photograpy specially.
Many camera phones have a macro setting but few people seem to use it.
I have included some advice about using a close-up lens attached 'roughly' to your phone.
It works but do not expect high quality. The advantage is that when offering IDs here we often need a closer look to be certain of the ID.

NOW look at this - three for one

If you are using a phone PLEASE have the camera settings at the largest and best quality available, as many of the Phone-observations seem to have low quality photos and are often unsuitable for viewing when enlarged or Zoomed. PLEASE tag all your new phonecam observations Phonecam - doing so will put them in this project gallery
