If you are starting with Inat, here’s a simple way to choose what you may prefer to observe.
That is so cute! Thank you for sharing!
Awesome! I’d end up at Other Amazing Arthropods ;)
Even if I were not studying them already, it’s Fungi for me.
And once again, animal bias in action.
The majority of user submissions are plants, yet only the underside of their leaves are worth looking at, with a lens.
Fungi and microorganisms for me!
Is there a plant based version?
I enjoyed “underside of leaves” as these are often neglected in favor of photos of a showy flower. Sometimes the boring bottom of the leaf is also important for identification purposes!
Bird and Moon comics are great, and she promotes iNat from time to time on her Twitter feed.
Hmm interesting, I ended up with butterflies and moths
I needed a separate option around wakefulness. Do you like early morning but willing to completely change your schedule and take new naps so you can do nocturnal insects? Still end up choosing everything. :)
As someone who often photographs slugs, snails, flatworms and earthworms, the “eh, needs more mucus” made me smile. I love this comic, although I am a little sad and surprised nothing about flies or Hymenoptera were included.
