Our Natural World
Photos submitted in this category will combine aspects of both close-up and nature, both wild and domestic. Nature photography is restricted to the use of the photographic process to depict observations from all branches of natural history, except anthropology and archeology, in such a fashion that a well-informed person will be able to identify the subject material and to certify its honest presentation. The focus should be the nature, but an image that contains minimal presence of hand of man will no longer be disqualified. (i.e., a bird sitting on a fencepost.)
