Travis,
Your file software should be able to organize them chronologically on demand
as it is part of the metadata tag.  It can also order them alphabetically on
demand.  
Is there a reason to place them in separate folders?  The reason I ask is
then it takes more specialized software to search many folders although
'ctrl f' can work depending on your system.

Hello!

I take a lot of pictures of plants. Way too many. I have been organizing
them in folders chronologically (~weekly), but the problem appears to be
that it is hard to find a picture of a specific species. Would it be best to
organize by Genus: Species: Date? In other words, photos of a single species
arranged chronologically in a species folder in a genus folder, you get me?
Hoe do others organize their photos?

And then to backup the pics, hardware (cds/zip drives) or a cloud?

Thanks! I've got to get them sorted before there's too much to sort!
