This section is provided more for reference and research than introduction. It contains about 580 photographs organized primarily by locality and date. (The local circumstances and detailed management for each of the three localities appears in 'INTRODUCTION' and 'information' files in 11.02, 11.04 and 11.07.) Organization is also provided by a supplementary two-dimensional spatial subdivision of the stand, where each cavity is identified by box, stack, nest block row in the stack, and cavity number within the nest block (generally counting l to r or bottom to top).

Example. For Jokers ONE1XX denotes a box position on the stand shown by a diagram in the 'information' file, with XX meaning all valid stack and row numbers. The address of the 5th stack of nest blocks within that box is ONE15X, the address of all the cavities in the 7th nest block up from the bottom of that stack is ONE157, and the address of the 2nd cavity or 'bore' in the block is ONE157b2 or ONE1572.

Many photos are records of the cavities whose SOURCE spreadsheets are within 11.0; the titles of the first few spreadsheet columns also give the address conventions. Regrettably there are some errors in photo addresses because of poorly handwritten field notes.

Species names in photo titles are abbreviated as usual (also 3.02) and hints, if any, as to what should be looked for, are terse. In addition, it has to be accepted that inspecting a photograph is more difficult than looking at the nest block in the field, where 3 dimensions, angle of lighting, probing with forceps and use of 10x lens quickly reveal (say) the species name or the intrusion of partial nest structures (e.g., walls or stoppers) of another species within the nest. The original .jpg files contain the date that the picture was taken.
