I just wrote a journal article describing my efforts to find the earliest first-hand, first-person field images of organisms on iNaturalist.
This is sort of a follow-up to an earlier discussion on this forum of our own personal earliest observations:
My journal post describes the qualifiers for the search: Not a museum specimen, and not from a secondary (e.g. published) source. I won’t duplicate the info in that journal article here except to pose the question:
What is the earliest first-hand, first-person, field image of an animal or plant that you can find in the iNaturalist database? Please post a link and an explanation here as a comment if you find something interesting.
