As the new year goes on, some waning of enthusiasm is to be expected

Like probably a lot of people, I started the new year with enthusiastic plans for my involvement in inaturalist. And I certainly have continued to be active.

But as with other things, there is always some ebb and flow. And February has been mostly ebb. I spent weeks dealing with an internet problem that made it very hard to upload pictures, so I didn't want to go out and get a bunch of observations that would be painfully difficult to upload. That problem is fixed, now. And while Corvallis hasn't had most of the country's inclement weather, there certainly were some rainy, icy days.

And also, there hasn't been a lot new appearing since January 1st. All of nature is interesting, of course, but I miss the brightness of flowers and the hum of bees. Cataloging lichen seems to have reached the point of diminishing returns.

Yeah, it's been gray. I to have gotten tired of photographing the same species over and over. Days are getting longer, though. It won't be too long before plants wake up.

Well, the middle of Winter (the exact halfway point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox) was 1:49 p.m. PST Wednesday, February 3rd, 2021 if you are in Oregon. We in the northern hemisphere are on the path to warmer weather so buds will come forth and those bugs will head out.

And in fact, today I saw some trees budding and leafing out...which I will post soon.
