Cape Peninsula Lifelist

Lifelist is buggy?

821 species today.
https://www.inaturalist.org/lifelists/dianastuder?tree_mode=full_taxonomy&place_id=123155

The formal list is
https://www.inaturalist.org/check_lists/900895-Adamson---Salter-List

iNat's places shows me at 778 species
https://www.inaturalist.org/places/cape-peninsula#/places/cape-peninsula=

Disa ferruginea doesn't show up on my 'lifelist' but it is on the other 2.
778 versus 821 species - will have to stumble after both numbers.

800 Cape Peninsula species today

Added a robber fly. Synolcus?

Only 4 900 to go - but the top 3 include penguins ... that's easy, Boulders beach is down the road.

(750 on 24 Sept 2023) For this plant person my last 3 are associated animals.

September wildflower hikes from 2023

Playing catchup.

I wonder about the geology of that ridge of boulders @raylantalbot ?
I only realised today I can use my iNat calendar in map mode to see exactly where we walked. The rocks ridge out to sea, but the landward side is a barrier of loose boulders. Don't see that anywhere else that we walk.

Mountain fires and Great Southern Bioblitz

We have spent the last few days between 2 mountain fires. Spotter plane and helicopters in an aerial ballet with their water bombs.

Looking back at beach blobs for my contribution to GSB instead of smoke and ash.
