Photo Winners!

Thank you for your patience as we sorted through thousands of observations to find our photo winners! Winners, your digital certificate award can be access by clicking on the link. Congratulations! And, once again, many thanks to @gpasch and The Lost Tinamou nature preserve for creating the awards.

With our final international Socially Distant Bioblitz (#10!) coming up this Sunday, we are just 7,000 observations short of reaching the 100,000 mark . If everyone recruits 2 people to participate in the last event, I'm sure we can achieve this goal!

Scary yet beautiful spiders

As I look through the uploaded observations of arachnids, I must mention both @bonnieeamick and @cecileroux for some truly scary yet beautiful specimens. Thanks!!

Wow, I secretly wished for and it was delivered!!

A HUGE THANK YOU, so far to the many observations of fungi (136 species), molluscs (221 species), arachnids (57 species) and ray finned fish (11 species).
@nicklambert I could sit and watch those shells for the day, woohoo!

Take this weekend to continue posting all your observations from last Sunday's outing everyone. Once again, THANKS for all the great observations!!!

5,001 Observations

We've just passed the 5,000 observation mark, and number 5,001 is a Greater Plantain reported by @tanniii66 from Ekaterinburg, Russia.

So far, @srall is leading in the number of observations (947) and species (360).

And 43% of all observations are "RG." Thanks again to 531 identifiers who have contributed to confirming IDs!

4,000 Observations!

Just reached this SDBioblitz's 4,000th observation, which happens to be this Katydid I found by chance while photographing a plant.

Hey @chrisleearm, you asked if we might reach 5,000 observations. Well, it seems observations keep coming in, so we just might :-)

Observation #3,000 was added today by...

...@srall, and it's a Common Evening-Primrose (Oenothera biennis) posted from New Jersey, USA.

As of this posting, we have 3,110 observations (half are "RG"), representing 1,544 species. Some of us are still reviewing photos and audios and posting observations, let's see how soon we make it to 4,000 obs!

At 2,066 Observations

Observation #2,000 was submitted by @awsalas, Tribe Chichorieae from Lima, Perú. As this 8th SDBioblitz is closing, we're at 2,066 observations and 1,149 species. In the coming days we expect this number to rise as we all continue processing photos and audios and reporting our sightings!

Four random observations from around the world

Using a random number generator, we found these cool observations!

@helenbergstrom photographed this Common Yarrow (ID verified by @jensu) in bloom, in the middle of a field somewhere in Sweden. So pretty!

@nicklambert posted a Sea Mat observation with multiple photos, offering us a glimpse of the sealife in Woolgoolga, Australia.

@hln_m_t shared with us the observation of a Mallard, swimming in the placid afternoon light, north of Moscow.

And thanks to @twan3253, we (on the other side of the world) get to know this cute Willie Wagtail (identified by @thebeachcomber for the 801st time!) from Sydney, Australia.

Thanks for sharing, we all keep enjoying all your observations :-)

Amazing Identifiers!

A well deserved thanks to all identifiers working hard today on iNaturalist, especially to all of you helping us convert our SDBioblitz observations to "RG". As of right now, 136 iNaturalist members have identified one or more SDB observations, with @thebeachcomber in the "lead" with 53 identifications, @ben_travaglini with 30, and @igor_kuzmin with 28. Thank you!
