Observation 100,000!

Congratulations on posting iSpot's 100,000th Observation! We should have run a sweepstake on which species it would be, but I don't think I would have guessed at Common Groundhopper!

ophrys is one of iSpot's most active users, helping many others with their identifications as well as posting his own observations, so perhaps not surprising that he has provided this landmark observation. But an impressive statistic all the same, and thanks to everyone who has contributed observations to iSpot over the last few years.

Wow!

What a surprise! Thank goodness it was not just a plastic Mallard which made the landmark observation!

Thanks to you and all the others who make iSpot work so well, Martin. What did we all do before it started?!

Congratulations Ophrys!

Well done on this landmark observation, well deserved that you were the one to put it on!
Like you we wonder what we did before we got involved in iSpot, it has given a purpose to our photography and encouraged us to look at so many other things other than plants, which will always be our main passion!
