Amazing Nature Contest - November 2020 - #02

in Amazing Nature2 months ago

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 #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.
  • All pictures have to be your own. You can use the amazing nature banner if you like or create your own.
  • STATE IN THE TEXT why those pictures are representing YOUR AMAZING NATURE. This is an ESSENTIAL part of this contest.
  • Drop the LINK to your post IN THE COMMENTS. You can add a picture if you like. It is NECESSARY as I have to post a link in Discord on Friday, 5 days later for voting and also for my own compiling purposes.
  • The entry window is open for ~ 5 DAYS. Watch out for the -CLOSED in the title.

If you miss the entry, please wait for the next round. As I have to work and also to manage a family there are no fixed UTC times.The window can open in a wide range between 10 am - 10 pm and also close accordingly ^^

  • The AMAZING NATURE COMMUNITY is there FOR ALL POSTS ABOUT THE AMAZING NATURE AROUND YOU. We would highly appreciate it if you share your great nature content there with us! .. The contest is located there as an integrated part and special community feature ^^

Possible Topics :

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

  • Botany
  • Zoology
  • Geology
  • Landscapes
  • Philosophy
  • ... Surprise us ^^


Prizes to Win :

  • 1st : 3 HIVE
  • 2st : 2 HIVE
  • 3st : 1 HIVE

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 @pablo1601.

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 ^^



























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 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?



If you are INTERESTED in DNA, please do not hesitate to ask about it, or directly JOIN US in the DNA DISCORD ;)

"By The People, For The People"


The Terminal & Discord :

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


It is a great location for LEARNING ABOUT HIVE, Discord, and Hive-related communities, full of nice people that you may ask if you need ASSISTANCE, with nearly everything ^^ You will find documents to assist you, a place to learn and practice, and find out about the many opportunities to form CONNECTIONS with other Hiveans.

It host the REDFISH RALLY, a funny challenge for all those that are new here to the world of Hive. The Terminal also hosts the HEYHAVEYAMET project by @heyhaveyamet, which introduces all new Hiveans on a daily basis, so that you don't have to search for them ^^


So why not joining us in the THE TERMINAL DISCORD? You will not regret it ^^

Hallo Nature Lovers ^^

I am sorry for being a bit late with the contest announcement .. my son found a bucket of paint and thought it a good idea and surprise to paint the whole living room including the ground and our shelf, so I was kind of super busy with cleaning up the whole night ;) .. Nevertheless, here it is now ^^ .. I wish you all an awesome new week in nature, wherever you are right now and stay safe at these weird times we are living in right now ! .. But I have a great memory now, haha 🤣

Children can be so much fun, sometimes ^^

Best wishes,

You have an artist at home. 😀
I bet he did surprise you.

 2 months ago 

Haha .. big surprise indeed ^^ These are weird situations when you are stuck in-between getting angry and simultaneously being proud for his creativity and will to help with painting 🤣

 2 months ago 

Hahaha, that is really fun situation. But let's face it, your son is creative. 😉

👐AMAZING work of art👐
Please let me know if you have prints made and much one would $$cost. I would like to purchase one.

 2 months ago 

Hehe, besides the nerves that it costs to keep calm when seeing this, this original painting is not for sale, haha .. but the artist properly signed the painting several times with his fingerprints 😁

That is very fun.😍 I'm going to title it: The Beginning of Civilization.

Great title, I love it ^^

Our kids sometimes have a different idea of what they think is beautiful! I hope you saved some of the hand print - they are priceless (we use to mark our heights on the doorway, why not leave our hand prints on the floor to see how much we have grown!)
Glad to see the new contest out, just love to see those amazing nature photos! Congratulations to the winners and those who got honorable mentions! Thank-you for including my post in the honorable mentions!

We used to mark our heights on the door-frames when I was younger, but actually the hand pictures are an awesome way to record growth too .. and such a creative way ;)

All of us who have children know of their artistic talents, whether painting walls, doors or furniture.

They will grow and learn quickly. We will have those beautiful memories that we will laugh about with them, an excellent idea when leaving a photographic record.

Big hug!

One day I will compile all these great memories in a photo collage and put it on the living-room wall .. This will be one of the most amazing memorie of all ;)
