Photographers who participated in DNCB Outings may want to share their best photos by uploading them to the DNCB Flickr site.  For consistency, and to make a Flickr Search more accurate, please use the Tags suggested below for EVERY photo uploaded.

NOTE:  Flickr makes it easy to assign a tag (or several tags) to a group of photos just before you upload your photos.
