Bij heel duidelijke foto van alledaagse bloemenstruik wordt deze niet herkend.

Insane species recognition: great to learn more about nature

Since they added the (insane) image recognition that suggests what species you’re seeing, this app became a great tool to learn about the nature. Oh, and on top of that it has a great community + you’re helping science with each observation you make.
