What’s a bioblitz? Well, you get a bunch of folks together and document every living thing in a small area over a 24 hour period. There are biologists with a great depth of knowledge about everything that crawls, swims, runs, or flies,and regular folks who just care about special places. It’s a lot of fun and I was fortunate to photograph the event for Audubon. Click more to see my photo essay.
