Hello Nature Lovers !
I would like to cordially invite you to another great week of the Amazing Nature Contest. There were already so many excellent entries regarding how amazing nature is in the past episodes, thanks to all of you, but there is still so much more to see! ^^ To participate in the #amazingnature contest just write up a post and explain how amazing nature is for you personally ^^
What is the Purpose of the Contest ?
I am a huge nature-lover and really enjoy taking pictures of all the lovely things that surround me every day, no matter if plants, animals or landscapes. Hive is a brilliant place to watch these while simultaneously reading and learning about nature from all over the world. There is such a diversity of great content, thanks to all of you, from different perspectives and out of various motivations. This contest attempts to collect all those beautiful snapshots and their amazing stories in a weekly compilation so that you all can benefit from the beauty that we are facing all the time, but so often are not able to appreciate in the modern and fast paced times we are living in.
#amazingnature is at home in the DNA-Discord, a organization run by people for the people, with the aim to foster and densify nature-appreciation in the blockchain. DNA is also the home of the #insectsoftheworld, the #featheredfriends and the @fungilovers communities.
Contest Rules :
- POST your entry INTO the AMAZING NATURE COMMUNITY. You can also use the #amazingnature TAG if you like to ^^
- CLEARLY MENTION that your post is an ENTRY for this contest.

I will present all participants in the entries section of the announcement posts that will be published roughly one week later on Sunday (depending on my time schedule this may shift ^^). This way you will have a nice compilation of them all. As an special feature, the new title picture will be created from the entry of the contest winner. This time it is from @tych021.
How are the Winners chosen ?
The voting on the winners will be done by the whole DNA community. Therefore we created a special contest channel in the DNA Discord (Amazing Nature Contest). Here I will post the announcement post including the winners (Announcements) EACH SUNDAY together with all your entries (Entries) EACH FRIDAY. Every member of DNA will be able to assign "voting emojis" under the entries for 24 HOURS. In the end those three with the most are the lucky winners. I will engage as a judge in case of a draw ^^
THIS WEEKS WINNERS
The winner of this contest round was chosen to be @tych021 with his entry about one of his forest walks. He was actually hunting some morels, but was not lucky this time. Instead, he found many great motives all around that he found during his search and which he pictured and identified for us .. Thank you for this great compilation ^^
This week @jlufer entered the contest with a post about the place where he lived and also learned to love and respect the nature around him. Thereby he tells us a lot about the trees in the area that he has special and precious memories with .. Thank you very much for this great post about what nature gives us on the way as children that still remains deeply withing us, even while we are already grown-ups ^^
The entry from @keuudeip shows us some interesting patterns in the sand. He also shows us its creator, which was a sea snail. In addition he found some old fossils close by at places that are far above the sea level and probably its ancestors ^^ .. Thank you for this interesting entry ;)
DNA - Densifying Nature-Appreciation :
DNA is an organization to foster and DENSIFY NATURE-APPRECIATION which aims to establish REPORTS OF BIODIVERSITY DATA that is contributed by all of us Hiveans and subsequently cataloged.
Therefore DNA searches for HIGH-QUALITY posts that aim to DESCRIBE and determine the BIODIVERSITY AROUND YOU with added EXPLANATIONS and INFORMATION. For these informative posts they offer a CURATION SERVICE using the @dna.org account. It is also a CURATION TRAIL. Just add the #dna TAG if you think that any of your posts is what they are looking for.
At the moment DNA is also the home of the #amazingnature for all your post about the amazing nature all around us and also the home of the #featheredfriends hosted by the lovely @melinda010100 🦢 for all you great posts about our feathered friends and the #fungifriday hosted by the amazing @qwerrie 🍄 for all your posts about fungi and mushrooms ^^ But we hope that more nature related communities will join, or maybe some Hiveans start their own little project there ;) .. Maybe even you?

There is another initiative here on Hive that I would like to bring close to you as I absolutely love them, The Terminal:
