I worked out a naming convention that suits me but I'd love to be able to shorten the name files while still capturing the information. Storing the files is basically like a file cabinet.
Starts with the Host for everything but the insects/arthropods or insect if it is an insect or arthropod
Host-pest-location-date (Year-MO-Da)-my initials or photographer-original number given by the camera.
Groundcovers (includes grass)
I'm sure there are wonderful new ways to do this so I'm looking forward to how others name photos and file them.
