Image placement[edit]

Hi Joseph, I'e reverted your change of image location in the Leafy seadragon article per the WP Manual of Style guidelines in WP:IMAGELOCATION: "avoid sandwiching text between two images that face each other, and between an image and an infobox or similar"and "It is often preferable to place images of faces so that the face or eyes look toward the text."

Capitalisation of common names[edit]

Hi Joseph, thanks for your edits to white-headed capuchin. Common names of mammal species are not capitalised on Wikipedia, unlike birds, so I have reverted your changes. We have had many discussions whether or not to capitalise and have finally come to the conclusion that we would follow the majority of literature in not capitalising. See WP:MOSLIFE for more information. Cheers, Jack (talk) 07:19, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

A barnstar for you[edit]

Hi again! Just noticed all your excellent image additions to Wikipedia recently. Thanks so much for adding them to Wikipedia! If you replace the smaller versions of the pictures with the original sizes I'm sure they would all qualify as quality images and some even as featured pictures!
