These observations from the past are wonderful! Thank you for uploading them and sharing. :) I really enjoy when folks add in their photos from years pre-iNaturalist.

@sambiology Thank you for taking time to comment; honestly, until I visited your link to the fantastic image from 1968 I'd not thought of sharing my 'lifetime' of images! I am sure I have some photographs of wildlife around my family's cabin that date back to the 1970s -- and it would be great fun to include them here. :)
