I used to be in the habit of uploading my “good” shots to Flickr. Where possible, I’d include the Latin scientific name. I also slap on an open and permissive Creative Commons licence so that others can reuse my work in return for attributing me.
Some time ago I was asked if one of my photos could be used in a scientific publication.
I’ve just received a notice from the author that the publication (Poupin and Lemaitre, 2022) is now published - and is likewise openly licensed so I can see my photo in situ without paying a cent!
And it goes without saying that I should cite the article appropriately in my blog post.
Poupin, Joseph and Lemaitre, Rafael (2022) A new hermit crab of the genus Calcinus from Rapa Island, French Polynesia with affinities to Calcinus dapsiles Morgan, 1989 and Calcinus sirius Morgan, 1991 (Decapoda: Anomura: Diogenidae).
