Not easy to find the time but we will see :)

Just saw that today I had spotted the nymph of this bug also in my backyard: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/380...

Sure you will find some free time to go outside and the outside is full of great insects! :))
and expedition is a must! :D

There is another problem before that, first I will need to find a free time of my PhD and then I can photograph all of them, if I can't alone then we all make an Project Noah expedition in the Alps :).

no worries, there will be! :D
yes, there really are many great insects!! and you won't have any free time if you want to take photos of all of them! :D

Hahah, there better be in France otherwise I will have to drink too much wine and eat a lot of cheese :).

There they have a lot of species we don't have here so we won't compete anymore :D

new to explore and upload here :)
Yes, and that is great, but they still are rare...

By the way there are firebugs in France! :)

Those many many... ones will be left for the next generations so they have something new to explore :).

Yes but government is paying money to people to keep those cows :)

ha, so there are many, many, many, many organisms left that you haven't taken photo of!! ;)

that cow doesn't look so blue in nature, but, yes, it still is something interesting to see :) but not many are left...

No, actually I have only few left not uploaded. Since the end of April till now that's all I got, no more than 1000 :).

I have studied some biology about Baltic countries plus have good friends from Latvija, I just wasn't smart enough to visit them when I had the time. Wanted to see the blue cow :).

then it will take a huge amount of time to upload them here! Because you have only 901 spottings here :D And I bet that in Denmark there are a lot more! :)

hmm.. I oculdn't find it, but maybe it really is, have to check a bit more carefully :)
Why do you know it so well?

FaredinAliyevski
FaredinAliyevski 9 years ago

Hahaha, there are not many organisms left that I haven't taken photo of plus it's terrible weather so the spotting numbers are decreasing :).

You should have it in Latvija, I know that country very well :)

you have to take thousands of photos before leaving!!!

Yes, that species differ a bit from the bug in your photo, so I don't know if this one is here in my country, but Acanthosoma haemorrhoidale is :)

And soon you will be left alone, even better responsibility for you :).

I guess it should be hard to find it now since all season I saw it only once and that was in my garden. Nothing in the forests!

Oh no, the ID is wrong!

Sintija Valucka
Sintija Valucka 9 years ago

:D sounds like a great responsibility!! But I like it! :)
By the way, I checekd and this species is here in my country, too!!! So I have to find it! :)

We need to represent our baltic countries properly since we are really a few from northern europe everything depends on me and you :)

I guess we need to convince someone else from Scandinavia to join PN because when I will leave then there will be almost to spotting from Scandinavia.

I guess I do :) But as far as I know, PN is the second best option of getting a dose of Scandinavia....

Wow thanks a lot, that's it...you obviously miss your Scandinavian species :)
