Huh, mine returned a different date, 03-08-2018 instead of 15-08-2020 (clearly, my birth year would not be represented - far, far too old for iNat obs).

But then I typed it as MMDDYY and got an Eastern Cicada-killer Wasp O_0

At the top of the list for my date was a Ragged Sea Hare.

OP idea is that you post your date as part of url, like a number of observation.

You are entering the observation number, not the date of the observation. So you can put your birth year and it will come up with an observation.

Maybe the number is too high? Try MMDDYYYY instead

Bummer that they didn’t have a photo, but if you look up the species, it’s a pretty flower.

Thanks. I’ll try to do that later when I have access to a desktop computer. My critter literacy is better at times than my computer literacy.

Red huckleberry. That’s cool, I like huckleberries.

Mine is a Brown-shaded Gray.

I got invasive Creeping Thistle, which is lame, so I switched to my usual preference of MMDDYYYY and got an unidentified Ceanothus in California. That works! Always excited for plants I haven’t met yet!

Nope, not too high, just a missing observation!

A terrible photo but Research Grade observation of an endemic species so… still cool.

Edit: I did DD/MM/YY instead. For DD/MM/YYYY I get this, which seems a lot less interesting (Casual Virginia Creeper).

you arent alone, i got mole too :confused:

btw now we know the birthdays of some repliers to celebrate :) isnt it a bit personal info to share?

If it makes you feel better, I worked where it was seen in summers as a teen, and it’s a cool place with a pretty unique biota for Canada.
