@brentano One of my favorite iNat folks. Was wondering how many more steps I would watch let him take on the ledge before I hollered at him for safety's sake.

@ Palo Pinto Mountains State Park (with special permission to access the property). Park is still closed to the public.
Unbelievably dry, but I saw new Texas territory and observed its flora and fauna.

This is one of the most devastating days of my life. I learned this morning that my El Camino Real Texas Master Naturalist hero, mentor, and friend has terminal liver cancer and is in hospice care.
Katherine Bedrich aka @doodlebug has taught, encouraged, and inspired me since we met in January, 2011.
Today, I have finally been entering the observations I made alone on the El Camino Real Trail last October and remembering the good times we had "on the trail" and elsewhere. The documentation of the flora on this Historic Trail through Milam County has been one of her passions.
So, as I entered a lichen observation, I thought of the photos I have taken of her peering through her loupe (and telling me to get my camera out of Auto Mode). My photo of her won me a 1st place at a TMN state conference.
KB is another of my iNaturalist "Favorites" collection.

Eric Hunt is another super iNaturalist I was priveleged to meet in person at the Mini Big Thicket BioBlitz in October 2016. He traveled all the way from Arkansas.
Super-helpful and really likeable fellow. I learned a lot from him on the Sunday trip to the Canyonlands. (Sorry for the awful highly cropped photo!)
Again, this superfluous to some observation is my way of documenting the icons of iNaturalists I have met in person and placed in my Fave's list.
Note the location of the photo is the Visitor's Center at the Big Thicket National Preserve but was entered as the parking lot of the motel where many attendees stayed in order to not skew the results of the BioBlitz.

Another super iNaturalist! I was honored to have met nathantaylor7583 (Nathan Taylor) at the October Bioblitz. Nathan has ID'ed many Euphorbia observations for me and others (i.e., his speciality) and he is a super helpful, intelligent and good-natured young man.
The photo shows him in the pose I most observed him assume during the weekend outings ... getting down on the ground to get a photo of the species of interest.
I blatantly changed coordinates to the motel where many of the iNat folks stayed in order to keep this observation from being automatically added to the Big Thicket BioBlitz projects. Photo was actually taken in the Big Thicket near Kountze, TX, but I really did see Nathan in the motel parking area later that day.
Another "trophy shot" to add to my Favorites list.

I think he is the first scuba diver I have met that takes underwater photos! Wow!

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 robberfly aka Liam O'Brien
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.)

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.
