The following pictures were incorrectly changed:

Underneath picture was in Nature close - other plants and was placed in flowers (?¿?¿), this is a plant and not a flower!

Underneath picture was in Nature Close - other natural objects and was placed in Animals - other by Pixoto.
This is an empty shelf, can you see an animal? If shelfs in their natural environment are not allowed, then you have to recategorize a lot of pictures in Nature close.

Please an explanation Pixoto and first take a close look at the pictures before you recategorize pictures.

The second picture you linked to is a snail, which is an animal :-)

I have them in my front garden all the time (why they never appear in my back garden is a mystery). Their shells are often quite beautiful.

The 1st image looks like a succulent but i can understand why someone thought it looked like a flower and reported the image as being in the wrong category, alas Pixoto staff are not plant experts.

Still a great image....well done

Leonore: this is not a picture of a snail!, it is a picture of a snail house; a shelf!. It was empty by the way and sticked to a plant. A shelf is not an animal Leonore. It would be the same as moving all the pictures from Archirtecture - Houses to the category people.

Curious to know how you expect people to know its an empty shell....its not obvious and so I would have agreed it goes into animals

People don ́t have to expect Terry! You see what you see--> a shell and I don ́t see a snail! A picture of house doesn ́t belong in people either, unless the people are the main obkject of the photo.

No, but a picture of a foot goes into People, or just someone's hair ... we don't have to see the entire person for the photo to go into People :-)

Clear the parts of the body go into people, but the houses / place were there live are going into buildings or other categories.

Hello Cornelis, I'm really sorry about this. It should not have happened. Both of your images were in correct category and should not have been recategorized. I will ask for them to be correctly recategorized, and we have added 2000 credits to your account.
Please accept my apology.
