Mottled Euchlaena

Euchlaena tigrinaria


Wow. One-thousand spottings. Who knew it would take a short two-hundred twenty-nine days? But these aren't just days; they are solid memories of knowledge and the amazing friendships I have made over this period of time. I am very ecstatic this spotting is of a moth, an insect I have learned much about throughout all of the users here over a period of only a few months. I have learned more here than any textbook could ever tell you. It would be impossible to list every single user that has inspired, supported, or assisted me here on Project Noah, because each user has inspired me in their own way, whether by taking amazing pictures, or a true talent in identifying species. I must thank the amazing team behind Project Noah. Yasser Ansari and Peter Horvath, the amazing co-founders of Project Noah. Martin Ceperley, for his dedicated help amongst the technological problems, and fixing them in a stunning amount of time. Karen Loughrey, for her extremely amazing support for me along my journey, and for perfecting her new role as Community Director. David Munson, for his talent of inspiring future generations to love and discover the nature out there. My summer was made when on July 9, 2012, I became a Project Noah Ranger. I have strived to help as many people as I can, and to serve this wonderfully beautiful community of spotters. Friends of Nature, Keep on spotting! Jacob
