Thank you for this! I asked a question about Annotations during a CNC web conference and the other participants were kind of so-so about how useful they are.
I ascribed my early habit of using Annotations whenever I upload an Observation (as much as I know, which is sometimes more than I know about the species–yeah, it’s flowering; what is it?) to a career spent working with databases and spreadsheets. I’m used to filling out all the applicable fields.
But there’s an awful lot of Observations missing Annotations and I wasn’t sure if it would be worth the effort to tackle a bunch. Apparently it is.
PS: Looking for a plant that I could view for flowering season, I chose Red Deadnettle. I didn’t even notice the stuff until iNat; now I see it everywhere! Anywho, that led to reading about the plant, finding out it’s edible, instructions for making tea… In short, there is fresh-picked Red Deadnettle drying on my kitchen counter, which will become afternoon tea.
