Book: Aquatic Entomology

This book is apparently no longer in print...and thus, the booksellers of the internet are charging ridiculous, outlandish prices for it. Ho hum.

500 pages are available FREE on Google Books...

Notes on iNat Activity This Month

This month I embarked on a time-consuming, tedious project: adding nearly 2,000 observations to my iNat account. I began by reviewing all of the photographs taken after 2009 - in other words, after my battle with breast cancer. In 2009 I began taking a lot of long walks with my four-year-old son on the days I didn't feel terrible. 😞 After my 2010 recovery I fully embraced nature photography and nature study...

Admittedly, the majority of those early photographs are not fine quality nor particularly useful for identifying some taxa - ferns, fungi, lichens - but I have benefited greatly by adding them to my iNat Observations.

In most cases my photographs - even the low quality ones - have received some level of species identification (thanks to the wonderful iNat Community); quite a few attained Research Grade.

Currently I am documenting/surveying the flora, fauna and fungi observed within my own 6,686 square foot property in south-central Pennsylvania. While most of the images are uploaded as Casual observations, b/c they are cultivated plants, many of those cultivated plants are in fact, U.S./PA native species and will serve (hopefully) as useful pictorial references.

I hope to complete my historical archive project soon...and my focus will return to current observations; paying closer attention to how I photograph a subject, highlighting details that aid in identification. 😊
