53 dragonflies and damselflies
23 other organisms (fungi, fish, various insects, etc.)
For a total of 932 species!
It turns out I seriously overestimated how difficult this would be. I think the main surprise is how many species of plants there are. It doesn't really feel like I've seen over 600 species of plants this year, but the numbers don't lie.
So what's next? I'll probably hit the 1000 species mark in the next week or two depending on how much effort I put in. Past that, I expect I'll finish the year somewhere between 1200 and 1300 species.
Here's some of my highlights for the year so far:
Small Round-leaved Orchid
Wolverine - terrible photo but an awesome animal!
Fairy Slipper Orchid
Spiny Softshell Turtle
Redhead x Ring-necked Duck Hybrid
Red Fox (Cross Fox morph)
