The numerous photos under Backyards No's. 1 and 7 always include the name of the photographer, at the lower right corner of the photo itself (and clearly readable not in microscopic print)! I believe in giving clear and explicit credit where due, and NOT "hiding it" on some obscure page at the back of the book (or website), far removed from the actual picture deserving credit which, in no way renders "credit" in any meaningful sense of that word.... Specimen sex (where discernible) is given at the lower left, along with measurements (in mm.), when available. See further details, re. interpretation of "LFW", in the list of abbreviations.
