I am a naturalist living in Vancouver, BC. I'm also into Evolutionary Psychology and Economics. I rejoice in all living organisms, particularly the minuscule ones. I use iNaturalist primarily to further my plant identification skills, and I gleefully record any bug that comes my way.

Please do not simply “Agree” with an ID that I, or someone else, have made without confirming that you understand how to identify that taxon. An identification confirms that you can confidently identify it yourself compared to any possible lookalikes.
