Separate Your Observations

Charlie...

You should put your observations of individual organisms up on iSpot as individual observations. This gives several benefits:

  • You can put each in the appropriate category (invertebrates, reptiles) so others will find it more readily;
  • You can give the observation a more specific title (eg. Lizard);
  • You can use the iSpot database to tag your observation, or get help from others, with a specific identification including the scientific name (Large Red Damselfly Pyrrhosoma nymphula - that's what yours is);
  • Your observations will also then be listed with other "similar" observations for others to see.
  • It seems like more work but you get more out of it. :)

Lizard

I agree with John above.

The dragonfly is a large red damselfly.

The lizard is a common lizard.

The flower is a wild strawberry, not sure which one.

The beetle is some kind of dung beetle, again not sure which one.

The butterfly is a speckled wood.

Please put these as seperate records in the relevant sections then the right people will be able to identify them for you and enjoy your excellent photos. If you want help on how to do this visit the help section of iSpot moving records is explained there.
