First BioBlitz

On June 3-4, I participated in my first BioBlitz. It was so much fun, and I am so grateful to everyone who shared their knowledge with me, whether in person or by helping me identify some of the many lifeforms I observed. I'm pretty good at finding things and taking photos, but I'm not as good at identifying what I've found. I've already got one field guide added to my wish list (thank you, Sigrun), and I'll be adding more. I also learned (and am still learning) what plant parts to photograph to help with identification at home.

It was fun to have an excuse to explore new areas, and I definitely wish that I had more time to explore a couple of the places I visited.

The best part of the blitz was getting to meet some of you, including @kueda and @mickley.

I'm looking forward to the next BioBlitz, whenever and wherever that may be. :)

@berkshirenaturalist is keeping track of all the ones in the area. Also check out the facebook group he made: https://www.facebook.com/groups/iNaturalistNewEnglandNewYork/

He mentioned there's one next weekend in Rhode Island, but I might be a bit blitzed out.
