After observing something in the field, and then uploading to iNaturalist I often craved to explore, learn, and understand the creature, insect, plant or topic at a deeper level.
This is a collection of my findings.
Would you travel to Costa Rica to hunt for orchids? That’s exactly what we did, and found an incredible diversity of species, structures, colors and sizes. From the 2-3 mm flowers to ones the size of tennis balls the world of orchids is one to admire and fascinating to learn about.
Ooooo boy, spenidng three months in San Diego County lead to many interesting observations and adventures. Take a read of the mysterious critters we documented!
Looking for a way to combine your creative side with an interest in botany or nature? Nature Journaling is the activity, the practice, the mindfulness activity for you! Each day Monday to Friday I journaled a flowering plant that was currently blooming in my backyard in Fernbrook, CA.
While walking through the jungles of Costa Rica I noticed how most leaves had moss, lichens, algae and liverworts on the upper surface. What’s the story here? That’s what I investigate today.
Ever curious how entomologists, experts and total noobs find insects? What is sweep netting? As a beginner in the insect-finding-game I’ve found using a sweep net to be very useful, so I investigated what it’s all about, and highlight a few recent insects found through the tactic!
Even though I finished reading The Cougar Conundrum by Mark Elbroch I am still thinking of multiple topics months later. Whether you are passionate mountain lion advocate, or just curious about this beautiful creature take a read of my thoughts on the book, and then go read it for yourself. You will absolutely learn more than expected.
