I'm an artist, photographer and citizen scientist retired from a career in cartography and geographic information systems, so I love that iNaturalist is georeferenced.

I have been taking photos most of my life, and underwater photography became my passion when I received my scuba diving certification in 1994. I also enjoy photographing flora and fauna in the natural areas near where my husband and I live in Florida. My Flickr gallery contains over 17,000 images of marine life, and is continually being updated: https://www.flickr.com/photos/coralreefdreams/albums

I rely on ID books, Internet resources and knowledgeable scientist friends for identification of species. I don't always get them right, so input from the experts here on iNaturalist is always welcome. I would appreciate a discussion/explanation before adding coarser IDs to my observations.

I see iNaturalist as a place to share my extensive library of nature images so they can continue to be used/useful long after I am gone, and it is my intention that they remain here as long as the site exists.

Everyone is welcome to use my photos for research and/or educational purposes. If you need a higher resolution version of a photo for a project, I will be happy to provide one.

Here are a few things that need IDs:

Octopus: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?place_id=any&quality_grade=needs_id&taxon_id=47458&user_id=coralreefdreams&verifiable=any

Nudibranchs: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?place_id=any&quality_grade=needs_id&taxon_id=47113&user_id=coralreefdreams&verifiable=any

Shrimp and Crabs: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?place_id=any&quality_grade=needs_id&taxon_id=47186&user_id=coralreefdreams&verifiable=any
