Seeking species

Today for lab the iNaturalist app was used to identify species around NDMU campus for an hour. We were separated in groups and our mission was to find 20 different families such as flora, fauna and fungi. We were to take clear pictures as best as we could. One of my observations was that finding fungi took the longest and was the hardest to find. Was able to make 18 observations and next step is waiting for verification. Currently have only 2 species verified and need to wait for more. Once all are verified will begin to work on lab-write up. Possibly will look for more species out of campus since I am a commuter. One of the most interesting findings was a hornet which was hard to capture. I will then processed to get more detail taxonomy of each specie, information on the distribution and natural historical information.
