For New York State I've pulled the Top 20 hotspots and noted the percentage
of species needing photos on the Illustrated Checklists (IC). The IC cannot
combine hotspots as we can with Bar Charts. Images with a 'best quality'
rating in the Macaulay Library get posted. You can view 'All Months' or
each individual month for photos for that period.

To rate photos you can click on the camera icon with the # of photos to the
far right of each species. If you're viewing 'Species w/ photos' I'd
recommend right clicking on the icon and opening in a new tab to preserve
the 'Species w/ photos' view in the original tab. Otherwise you'll need to
choose 'Species w/ photos' again and find your place in the list when you
press the back button.

The list below shows:
- the hotspot name with a link to the IC
- total species seen
- # of species *needing* photos
- % of species *with* photos on the IC
