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!

Thank you for highlighting some of the wonderful observations during the bioblitz, and congratulations to all!! See you on Sunday!

Thank you! I don't often take "pretty" photos of plants, I'm more interested in identifiable, but that red maple jumped out at me and I took it solely for the "art" of it. These bioblitzes have been so much fun and give me a reason to get out and explore even when I'm not really feeling it. Thank you for all the work you do with them!

Congratulations to everyone!! You guys are making it more challenging to narrow down the winners :-D

Thanks! A pleasant surprise. (By the way, the scientific name for Red Maple is Acer rubrum, not Myocastor coypus) It's fun to see photos others have posted on the bioblitz.

@sedgequeen I would have been thrilled to photograph a Myocastor coypus!

Well, if you ever visit Corvallis, Oregon, I can direct you to some!
