      1. I can imagine. I have much respect for your identification rate across so many categories of life. Hats off! Posted 5 months ago
        1. I grow more and more obsessed (especially with plant and fungi) taxonomy! Keying things out can be so rewarding (but maddening at times)! Posted 5 months ago
          1. I understand the obsession as well as frustration :) All those bits and pieces do add up over time. You've already photographed over 200 species! And these don't lose value, they are here to stay as incredibly useful and educational observations for an indefinite amount of time. Posted 5 months ago
  3. What a great picture! As well as being well-identified for us lesser beings!!!! Posted 5 months ago
