Life on a Quarter Acre

When I first heard about iNaturalist a few years ago, I decided to use it to see what's living on our property -- a standard quarter-acre lot in the town of Moscow, Idaho.

So I started photographing everything I could find, and submitting the photos to iNaturalist. So far I've found 421 taxa on our little lot (not including cultivated plants).

I took all of the photographs on this website with a Canon SX60 camera, using a 500 D closeup lens when needed. I'm not much of a photographer; I just point and click and hope for the best.
