Welcome Steve. 

I'm still very much learning a lot every day. Feel free to ask any questions on here as they are all a great bunch of people who are really good at giving advice and tips. And it's all based on years of experience. Quite often it's useful to search the forum for a question that's been asked in the past because you often end up with a ready made debate without having to wait for replies.

Steve,

 

Welcome to Alamy and the best of luck with your sales.

 

A couple of comments on the images you have uploaded.  I would include the scientific name when you have it in the caption as well as the tags where you have included it.  Also, I would add a general location to the caption and tags -- maybe just Spain or Andalucia, Spain.  Sometimes it matters to a buyer where the photo was taken.  I don't do detailed locations as I doubt buyers would be interested on my animal photos.  In my case, just Arizona USA not Bonita Creek, Cochise County, etc., unless there is a good reason.

 

Also, I'd add some commas to the caption to make it easier to read:  Scarce Swallowtail Butterfly, Pear-tree Butterfly, and so on.
