I'm a volunteer naturalist focusing on insects since about 2008. For the past several years my concentration has been on wasp observations, and I'm on iNaturalist most weekdays helping sort Hymenoptera.

I enjoy all the wonderful observations and photos submitted on iNat, and I wish I had the time and energy and words to exclaim and compliment every one, but I can only write Wow - Great photo! so many times.. Same goes for my infrequent explanation of identification, partly because I'm surely the slowest typist in the worldwide web..
Hint for wasp family identification: Look at shape first, proportions, abdomen, eyes, antennal length, and wing venation when possible. Judge by markings and color absolutely last, as always.
