Description

Came across this photo of GREG LASLEY, one of my favorite iNat folks, and HAD to include as an observation. Realizing it may be "frivolous" info to some, I want to document how much help he has been to me and so many iNaturalists.
GREG LASLEY went above and beyond to fulfill his promise to speak to my Texas Master Naturalist chapter in Milam County, Texas on this date. This photo of GREG LASLEY was taken in Rockdale,Texas, while he was sharing his observations, experiences, and photographic skills with my El Camino Real Texas Master Naturalist Chapter.
Thanks, again, Greg.

Bob follows a lead. One of the cool things about Christmas bird counts is you almost always get curious questions and tips on where to find birds.

Description from Wikipedia

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.
