iNaturalist does this thing where they’ll give you a graphical summary of your contributions in the past year. Here’s mine.
See all the orange? That’s what they use to color-code arachnid observations. I might have a little bit of a bias there, and I have no idea how any birds and mammals crept in there, and I’m afraid plants don’t exist in my universe. Still, despite my narrow focus, I spotted 68 species this year. That’s not at all impressive. Can you name 68 species? Apparently, I can, and I’ve even photographed them.
I’ve been terrible at contributing identifications, that is, helping others by identifying what’s in their photos. I should aspire to do better at that next year.
Maybe I can strive to look at something other than spiders in the coming year, too, although that might be difficult, since they’re not as interesting.
