Google Services (Products) annoyances

I'm rather furious that my photos captioned with specific words (scientific names of plants) are not returned when I search my photos; rather Google is returning a bunch of my photos that look like the plants but are 90% of the time incorrect identifications.  This is absolutely bonkers.  How hard is it to index my captions and return the photos that have the search terms in those captions rather than doing a piss poor job of image recognition?  I know for a fact Google is already indexing my photos based upon my captions because when I add a correct species ID, the search results improve to about 15 to 20% correct "similar-looking" plants, but still missing many of the photos I manually captioned with the scientific name.

Ludicrous and infuriating!
