Dave can we have catkins added to the list of photo types when adding a photo to the database?

What's a catkin? Looked up. Nice one. I've seen these on birch. Raked them up too.

Hi Evan. I ended up putting it as a bloom. If we get catkin added I'll go back and change it. : )

We already have "Bloom" as an image type. Since catkins are clusters of inconspicuous blooms, I think adding it to the image types would be redundant. If we start further sub-categorizing the types of images, I fear we'd end up with a long list that would get pretty unwieldy.

Makes sense, I just didn't know if I should call it a bloom. Sticking tongue out
Thank you Dave. Thumbs up

For this particular plant: Pignut Hickory (Carya glabra) under bloom color I described it as yellowish-green catkins.
For other plants I think I've also be mentioned in the comment section that the blooms are catkin like panicles etc.

Thumbs up It was so much fun researching Hazelnuts. I didn't know there were male and female blooms.
