Raspberry ID (Rubus occidentalis, Rubus leucodermis, Rubus idaeus strigosus)

This article discusses morphology and identification of the common red and black raspberries in North America: R. idaeus, R. (idaeus) strigosus, R. leucodermis, and R. occidentalis.

Protractile toe tips in Carnivora

(writing in progress)

I think I may have spotted something original in the morphology of the Carnivora.
 
The topic is a mechanism, in the skeleton of the toes, whereby the last, clawed phalanx is hinged relative to the rest of the digit in such a way that the claws are protractile. What this mechanism allows, in practical terms, is that the claws can be extended to grip surfaces that they would not otherwise contact.
 
This is usually called ‘retractable claws) b...

Why do I make observations?

So, I'm approaching 100k observations (yay factors of 10!), and I had a wonderful conversation with a friend about why we make observations. Well, if you're curious, here are some reasons that I make iNat observations (in no order):

Filling up the map -- I love seeing a map getting covered with dots/evidence. It could be a geographic dot or a temporal dot -- a place or a time. I tend to observe pretty much everything! I try to get plants with their reproductive structu...

June 2022 bioblitz last day for observations!

We hope you've enjoyed this blitz. In some parts of the world, it is over already, and for the rest of us, we're just heading into the afternoon / evening of the last day for observations. Afterwards, you'll have ample time to upload, annotate, and tag everything. Please everyone pitch in and help identify as many of the blitz observations as you can!

Hello Everyone,

July 4, 2022

It was fairly breezy this morning, but that can be an advantage. Insects will disappear if they feel unnatural movement of their perch, but wind does not bother them. When it's breezy, I can gently grasp a stalk and hold it still for photos and the insect simply thinks the wind has stopped.

I dare not identify the crab spider. I will get it wrong. Four anterior eyes but no dimpling of the carapace. The dimpling could be a matter of age. I finally got the eyes today only after it ...
