Bruce, Mike, et al.,

I would suggest the collecting info be kept separately in a text file that
could be downloaded for those who are interested.  If there is a virtue to
associating a particular color morph of a given species with a particular
location, then the location could be on the same page as the image, but the
rest of what goes on a typical set of pin tags won't mean beans to most
