Amazing Nature Challenge - August 2019 - #05

in nature •  19 days ago 

Hello Nature Lovers !


I would like to cordially invite you to another great week of the Amazing Nature Challenge. There were already so many excellent entries regarding how amazing nature can be in the past episodes of this challenge and there is still so much more to see ^^ .. To participate in #amazingnature just create a post that shows how amazing nature is. This can be anything from a beautiful flower or animal to an astonishing sunset.

What is the purpose of this challenge ?

I am a huge lover of nature and really enjoy to take pictures of all the lovely things that surround me every day, no matter if those are plants, animals or landscapes. I found steemit to be a brilliant place to find and watch nature pictures from all over the world. There is such a diversity of this content out there, thanks to all of you, from different perspectives and out of various motivations. I would like to collect all those beautiful snapshots in a weekly compilation so that you can all benefit from the beauty that we are facing all the time, but so often are not able to appreciate in the modern times we are living in.


Contest Rules :

  • Use the #amazingnature tag in your post for the challenge.
  • The pictures that you post have to be your own.
  • State in your post why those pictures are representing your amazing nature.
  • Drop the link to your post in the comments. It is not mandatory but appreciated as all participants and also myself can find it easily.
  • Please try to submit only one post per challenge. Of course you can do more, but I try to stick to one picture per steemian in the announcement posts.

Possible Topics :

As nature covers an extreme wide range there is anything possible. Amazing Natures categories could be anything from the following topics:

  • Botany
  • Zoology
  • Geology
  • Landscapes

I will always try to link and present all the steemians that entered for Amazing Nature in the entries section of the announcement posts that will be published roughly one week later. This way you will have a nice compilation of all the amazing nature pictures. The new title picture of the challenge will be created from the best picture of all participants. This time it is from @ellenripley.



Today I had a hard decision to make. @nelinoeva, one great contributor to #amazingnature, submitted so many nice macrophotography pictures which are all sooo beautiful. It starts with flowers and prolongs to insects and also this little spider here. I choose the spider in the end and hope that you all enjoy this one as much as I do ^^



Here we have amazing Big Southern Butte, that was submitted by @viking-ventures. It is one of the world's largest volcanic domes, that rises 2500 feet from the land surrounding it. It last erupted around 300,000 years ago and is part of the chain of volcanic activity created by the hot spot that now sits under Yellowstone National Park. That contrast of colour in this picture is really amazing.



This breathtaking sunset was submitted by @iamraincrystal. She is a new user here on steemit from the Phillipines and joined us this month. Nethertheless she already posted some amazing landscape pictures in that time. It is worth to look her up ;)



This cute little cat here was send in by @hangin, a steemian that I already know for quite a time. While he was eating some stir fried veggies with chicken this curious mysterious cat popped up from nowhere. Of course he could not withstand those eyes looking at him and shared his meal.



Here we have a picture by @elkezaksek. She is also quite new to our platform and shows a lot of beautiful macrophotography of insects, and various animal, especially apes ^^ .. But you can also find amazing portraits and streetart here. For this challenge she submittet those antilopes which she pictured in the Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda.



Thanks to the buddliea bush or commonly known as the 'butterfly bush' @ellenripley managed to get a shot of a Red Admiral butterfly which we now are all lucky to admire due to her post ^^




I thank all of you who participated in this week and hope that you enjoyed the Amazing Nature Challenge. I hope for more excellent content and maybe this can be the start of a nice new Nature community. Of course the format is open for all kind of critics that can increase the quality of the challenge and I am always happy about anyone who wants to join this little adventure.


Best wishes,
