I earned a B.S. in Botany, but took up computer programming and technical writing instead. I still use the taxonomy training to identify stuff: flowers, animals, creepy things, and whatever I see underwater while scuba diving and snorkeling. I do citizen science projects in central Texas, USA, and am slowly adding my old travel photos to finally find out what I saw. Here's my list of species: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?place_id=any&subview=table&user_id=jbecky&view=species

While the Novel Coronavirus COVID-SARS-2 keeps me mostly at home, I've taken up binge-walking locally to observe my wild neighbors. Here's what I saw in Year One of the pandemic: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?d1=2020-03-08&d2=2021-03-02&place_id=any&subview=table&user_id=jbecky&verifiable=any&view=species

I like to help identify things. I do a lot of high level sorting, but there are some Central Texas plants, invasive plants, tropical marine fish, and cleaner shrimp I know well. Here’s a list: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?ident_user_id=jbecky&place_id=any&subview=grid&view=species
