One guy, mushrooms, ferns, moss and lichens, just spells out the scientific names for me as I right them down, he always get the spelling correct. Many times when we find something that looks a little different, I ask him if I have it, if he says yes, he then tells me where I took the pictures. He is amazing. A couple from the museum name all the marine stuff. I go out with wildflower people and also get any bird named, especially the water birds.

I am really enjoying these photos, Kildale. Thanks for sharing them! I'm also enjoying the common names - they seem to fit so well. Like "gold dust lichen". It actually looks like gold dust!

Yes, even the green map here looks like a map of Europe or somewhere.

Very cool.

I especially like the middle/crabseye one.
