You know you're seriously into iNat when

Wouldn’t that make a great twist for a spy novel/movie? Instead of the traditional ‘honeypot’ setup to steal classified information, the wiley, seductive spy gains the naturalist target’s information by faking a passion for the target’s obsession.

“Say, is that a Synanthedon acerni in your tresses, or are you just happy to see one?”

Sound like a new romance genre. Step aside highschool sweethearts and enemies to lovers here comes spy-to-naturalist, with a newfound love of nature.

Didn’t Sherlock Holmes retire to a naturalist life? Studying bees, was it?

When your family asks you to design a t-shirt for a reunion and you can’t get past the obvious visuals of your surname.

And for me, this works for both sides. My mother’s maiden name is the Ukrainian word for mosquitoe.

Born to bug.

(Hey, maybe that could be the reunion slogan?)

You create a calendar to send as a holiday gift that has pictures of spiders, forgetting that no one else wants to look at spiders much less hang them on the wall. (But they are so CUTE and pretty!)

And you have friends who won’t open your emails if they have attachments for fear that they might contain photos of spiders or snakes. Or other supposedly loathsome things. What does that even mean?
