This cuckoo wasp by @nbdragonflyguy https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/102410641

I’ve said it before - I’ve learned so much from iNat about diversity of wasps. Green wasps, who would’ve thought!?

I love the contrasting color of this one https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/35658962. But my other favorite is definitely the goose one… I’m sure someone will post that link!

Nope, too many choices and too many not yet seen, and my favorite can change day to day.

I know it looks like i’m not doing anything but this is actually me being very mature and not posting a link to Gerald.

I’ve seen lots of amazing photos here, so it’s hard to choose just one! What I can say for certain though is that this Indian Lily Moth was one of the first photos to come to mind when I saw this thread. I adore any photo where you can clearly see the facial features of an insect. Something about it, at least for me, serves as a reminder that they’re little creatures with lives just like we are. Photos like this just make me appreciate them even more. Not only that, but this is one of my favorite species which only makes me love it even more!

It’s super hard to choose just one of the amazing photos I’ve seen on iNat, but one that comes to mind is this one of the jumping spider mimic flies by @kueda

another more recent one that comes to mind is the rubber ducky wolf spiders by @squidpastry

Five years later, this one of a bird people-watching still takes the prize for me.

THE Lappet: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/9211992

This was the photo that I was looking at when, after eye surgery, my brain’s vision system ticked over from lifelong monocular to newly binocular. Plus, excellent moth photo in any case :)

This photo of a wolf from Israel - https://inaturalist.ca/observations/9728879. Mostly because I had no idea Grey Wolves were in Israel.
And this one from Greg Lasley - https://inaturalist.ca/observations/9686530. Again, because of how far south this Owl was seen. Even seeing them in Winnipeg is south for them.
