A Plant Nerd Asks (for better photos)

Plant Nerd

Apart from paperwork and reporting one of the things which annoys me the most is receiving photos of plants to identify when the plant is blurry, too small, or not showing any identifiable details. 

While it is true I can identify some plants from a few hundred metres away (or driving past at, umm, 100kmh) what I, and other plant nerds, need is good clear photos showing as many of the plant’s features as possible (leaves, flowers, seed pods, bark, growth form) and general location helps a lot too (and I get people from government agencies who should know better doing this too). So, how about we look at an example.
