This is another of my blatant "Trophy Observations" of an iNaturalist Powerhouse.
In the top 5 on the Leaderboards for Nov 2015 observations, species, and identifications, he is an interesting and really nice guy.
I think he is the first scuba diver I have met that takes underwater photos! Wow!
due late March :)
A lot of "reclamation" of the area from the sea by the judicious use of building rubble as fill - the heritage of early Wellington preserved by dumping it in the sea - Here lies evidence of one human and his endevours - William Tonks (of Tonks avenue brickworks) - Tonks avenue has also been 'reclaimed' and no longer exists, replaced by a city bypass road.

This guy is a genuine, bonafide, home-grown Texan that I, as a small-town Texan, immediately "took a liking to"... He is the kind of person I want as a friend or neighbor...
And... we both confess to being "self proclaimed absolute iNaturalist addicts".
Hope to make it up to his area of Texas to the LLELA (Lewisville Lake Environmental Learning Area) for a visit soon.
Another great iNat observation for me!
aka kueda aka Ken-ichi Ueda
What can I say about this guy? Meeting him was like walking on holy ground.
I have emailed many really stupid questions about navigating on iNat and @kueda was always patient and helpful.
This is another treasured and "Favorites" observation of a fantastic iNaturalist!

Two years ago on Nov. 22, 2013, I added my first four observations to iNaturalist.org.
One of these, a monarch caterpillar (http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/465471),
was promptly identified by @robberfly.
I could say that he is one of the reasons I am addicted to iNat.
I am pleased to be able to add robberfly's photo to verify that I was fortunate to meet him. Great guy!
(By the way, my other three initial observations were IDed by @greglasley.)
@robberfly, I have found the optimal birding vehicle for you to complete your transformation to birder elite. I took this shot in Barrow, Alaska, in 2012...I know this vehicle is for you...has your name all over it. It would attract attention on the streets of San Francisco I suspect. This is more than roadside kitsch I think...
Homo sapiens (Latin: "wise man") is the scientific name for the human species. Homo is the human genus, which also includes Neanderthals and many other extinct species of hominid; H. sapiens is the only surviving species of the genus Homo. Modern humans are the subspecies Homo sapiens sapiens, which differentiates them from what has been argued to be their direct ancestor, Homo sapiens idaltu.
