Step 1: Upload photos to make an observation
Step 2: Clicking [Species name] usually focuses on the flower, less often the bees. It will automatically name the flower and I have to delete and tell it the Bee names, sometimes more than once because my entry is being overridden.
Step 3: If it looks good, I click upload the observation.
Step: 4 When I come back later to see if I got any ID hits, I find one now and then that doesn’t get a Bee ID because the title is now the name of the flower the bee is sitting on. I then edit it to the bee again. So far that has stayed in place so maybe it is only a problem in the uploading?
I wonder if having the name of the flower in the photo caption is being read and somehow taking precedence over the name of the bee, which I usually don’t have to species yet. Or if the Observation: “Associated Fields with Names Lookup,” or “Plant Association” could be interfering? Or if the AI sees the bees as flower centers or petals and ignores them at the expense of the seeing “bee” instead?
It happens on individual observation uploads and Batch Uploads where the entire group was labeled something like: Andrenidae
