Prairie Wildflowers AT FULL SPEED

https://prairieecologist.com/2020/01/13/finally-a-practical-guide-for-roadside-wildflower-viewing/

“Black-eyed Susans are a common roadside wildflower. They can often be distinguished from upright yellow coneflowers because the darker brown/black streaks are embedded within the broader yellow streaks in black-eyed Susans, whereas those dark streaks are usually above the yellow in upright yellow coneflowers.”

You’re welcome. :joy::joy::joy:

If you’ve made observations as a passenger in a vehicle there is a project for you! https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/ethaning

Oh my gosh, there are some mountain flower banks I go past regularly where there’s no safe place to stop- “Ethaning” is the solution?!

Definitely guilty of that … I have a joshua tree observation in the middle of nowhere from taking a photo out of the window because there was snow on the ground.

What if I currently have something already in my list of observations that would fall into this category and wanted to add it to this community? How would I do that?

you can join the project and add the observations to it

The only limitation is that you have to be in an active vehicle. That means running cars, running boats, a canoe drifting down stream, an airplane, the ISS, etc.
