For Keyword Searches
If you are looking for a particular species use the keyword search. We recommend that you use one of the scientific or taxonomic names for rapid and specific results. For example if you want images of Pilot Whales (Globicephala macrorhynchus) a search using either "Globicephala" or "macrorhynchus" will return just images of Pilot Whales. Using the common name "Pilot" will include images of other unwanted species such as "Pilot Fish (Naucrates ductor)".
