With heavy clouds, bringing dim light and rain, the first day of 2019 did not inspire me to get outside, and I spent a good chunk of the day working on things inside.
Among other things, I finished up getting all of my relevant 2018 photos into iNaturalist observations. I ended 2018 with 2770 observations and 1080 species (though this latter number will change as identifications are added later). This is my second most species ever (after last year), and possibly my highest count of iNaturalist observations (depending on how many photos I still have left to add from 2017).
This afternoon Connor mentioned there was some color in the sunset, and sure enough, a well placed gap in the clouds allowed the setting sun to give some welcome color to the skies in the fading light.
