inaturalist is a citizen science website+app with the goal of documenting biodiversity in your area. it features a large community of bug lovers, botanists, birders, mycologists, mammal fans, and other enthusiasts of the nonhuman world, some of whom are willing to lend a hand in identifying stuff! computer vision-based suggestions give you starting points for possible identification, which is very useful for ecological newbies and adapts alike.
