Follow Friday

in #hivelast month

I have noticed that @steevc often does a post called Follow Friday. I think its a good idea, a way to introduce people to new and/or interesting accounts.

On the latest one he wrote this comment:

Another week ends and it is time for my regular #FollowFriday post. I still live in hope that others will adopt this tag, but I will keep doing it anyway.

I'll have a go at it this too. On my blog I write about a wide variety of stuff, but the main focus is usually on Wildlife and other aspects of the Natural World. Obviously that means I spend time looking for and appreciating other peoples post that are on the same lines. I'm not just after pretty pictures, but I want interesting articles too, full of facts and thought-provoking content.

As I write this, the time is currently 23:35, so hopefully I can get this published while it is still technically a Friday!

Lets get to it... here are 3 accounts that share lots of interesting information about the natural world around us

1 - @faltermann

This probably isn't a surprise to many of you. @faltermann is a well known account, and has many followers and gets rewarded well on his posts. And this is for good reason, the content he shares on the various species of insects (most notably Moths and Butterflies) is full of detailed information, and the photography is of a very high standard. He also goes to the effort of providing background info on the location, or info on how he took the images.

I found this account within a few days of joining HIVE, and it encouraged me to put some effort into my posts and write interesting articles as opposed to just posting pretty pictures.

2 - @adalger

Another 'big' name regular readers may recognise, @adalger is a scientist who loves exploring the great outdoors. These days he seems to spend most of his time managing the Amazing Nature Community. This is a place for where lots of accounts share the 'Amazing' Nature they can see in their local area, and as HIVE is a global place, so there is lots of cool stuff to see of animals and insects and flowers and landscapes.

I'll let him explain it in his own words:

To participate in the #amazingnature contests just create a post that shows how amazing nature is for you personally. This can be anything from a beautiful flower or animal to an astonishing sunset. Source

3 - @juanbg

And now last but certainly not least, @juanbg is a smaller and currently a lesser known account, but I suspect it won't be like that for long. He is a Marine Biologist from Mexico, who appears to be very busy in real life. This means he doesn't post very often, and he doesn't always talk about nature, but when he does the Articles are amazing! Well researched and referenced with the relevant sources, he deserves more attention than he is currently getting.

The themes are almost always linked to the oceans, and there is loads of cool information. I don't expect to experience the kind of nature he manages to get close to, so this is a fascinating glimpse into another world

As I check the clock it is now technically 00:20 on Saturday, but nevermind, I nearly made it on time haha.

I hope you check out these accounts, there is some really interesting information (and pretty pictures!) being shared by all 3 writers.

I'll now turn this over to you... Are there accounts that I have missed? Are there people sharing interesting information about the world about them that I need to check out?

Please leave any suggestions in the comments below

Hey @dannewton, thanks a lot for introducing me. I think it's a great idea to get to know other people but also to meet many others who make very interesting content. Thank you!😀🐬

Thanks for your proposals, I really feel difficult to find something interesting to read/curate lately...
I don't know what the hell is happening here :-(

Sorry, I don't understand what you mean by this, are you struggling to find interesting content, or are you lacking motivation to even try?

The first option

Ah I see... interesting stuff is out there somewhere, I guess it depends when you look maybe? I usually post my articles at the same time of day (ie late evening), I don't know if others do the same?

Good morning, Dan,

I am really surprised and happy about your article. As the contributions here on Hive are usually very crypto-heavy, some advertising for nature never hurts. We need many more people here at Hive to publish high-quality articles that provide added value for readers and viewers.

Thank you for your advertising and have a nice weekend 🦋

Good evening @faltermann

No worries! I really enjoy your posts, and I definately wanted to copy/emmulate the way you try to write interesting content and not just post pretty pictures with a list of camera settings like some do.

I do agree there are several interesting accounts on here sharing intersting infomation, but I would love to see more.

Do you have any suggestions of accounts I can follow that are trying to create interesting articles?

(thanks for the re-share and the cross post, that's a community I wasn't aware of)

I have listed a few people below who stand out from the crowd with very good contributions. Maybe you do not know some of them yet.


Have a nice Sunday my friend 😀

smileycat thank you.png for the mention @faltermann 😊 I also appreciate so much your fantastic nature captures ...! 😉❤️

Danke dir für die Erwähnung. Thank you for your mention. @faltermann deine Schmetterlingsbilder sind aber auch immer genial. Your Butterfly images also stand out from the crowd.

I will have to check these out. We have some great photographers on Hive and peakd is a nice way to view them. I hope more will join up when they find out about it. Thanks for being part of #FollowFriday. I have done those posts for years.


No worries, and Yes I think I will be doing more of these #followfriday's in future. Its a good idea to get people talking about each other and start networking with other members

Good stuff. None of us can see all that goes on, but we can let people know of cool folk they may not have seen.
