very good job habitat is wrong but over all i think it is very good and easy to see that you did in fact find the whirligig beetle.

Cool critter you found there. I liked how your written evidence was demonstrated by your photo evidence. I also really appreciated your species counts in your field notes.

Keep up the good work!
