About me
I am Swarochi, a 14 yo odonata lover, I go nuts when i see an odonate,thats why "odonut"

Other than Odonata,I like Ants,Beetles,Moths and Butterflies,Heteroptera and many others.

I love going outside and observing everything my eye can see. I am a total nature addict and get high whenever i'm outdoors. I hope others here reading this are like me. If yes,send me a message! I would love to observe with you guys!!
If any of my ids are wrong,please feel free to correct me as i am just an enthusiast and not an expert.

discovered iNat in this video. Ever since,i've been observing and learning!

My Observation of the Day
One of my observations has been selected as iNat observation of the day. It’s Chlaenius malachinus,a tiny little cute beetle.
I found this beetle beside a dumpyard near my house and it looked rather boring to my untrained eyes other than the yellow spot.I took the pic anyway just to document it. Almost a month later, @borisb added an identification to it and that was when I realised it was an iNat first! Few days later, I was checking my discord after waking up in the morning and one of my friends told me that my obs has become observation of the day. I jumped out of my bed and checked iNat and i couldnt believe my eyes! This had been one of my goals every since i came to this community and I am so happy that it finally came true :)
