Noted in the flickr group "-I Love Nature" group rules:
"Due to the overwhelming amount of bird photos we are receiving the number of daily accepted bird pictures is limited to allow some balance in the pool."

Seems like there needs to be a redefinition of 'Nature'. These days, anything is possible!

Take care Joseph and best regards, Neil.

Neil; you are spot on!...as usual
The dictionary official definition has nothing to do w the current usage of the word. Surprising how lagging the dictionary world is. Agreed an update seems needed.

I thought it interesting, at least in some flickr land, that limitation on bird pictures was necessary.
All the Best___Joseph

That is why we do not have a nature thread but we have a birds and a birds in flight thread

I am unsure what you guys mean when you say there is redefinition (needed) of the word nature. The Cambridge English Dictionary on nature:
all the animals, plants, rocks, etc. in the world and all the features, forces, and processes that happen or exist independently of people, such as the weather, the sea, mountains, the production of young animals or plants, and growth.
Probably due to the fact I am not a native speaker....

Addy - we have, in the past, had a somewhat 'freer' interpretation of Nature on the Photo. Soc. I am in here in the UK which then created all sorts of issues, not least of all in one instance having to have a debate with the Judge part way through the competition as to what qualifies as a 'Nature Image'! We now go by the definition laid down by the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain - but even that is a little vague in places....

As I keep on saying at work - it's all about the definition of what you want us to do; you define it - we'll do it!

Best regards, Neil.

Found the definition: http://www.thepagb.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/nature_eligibillity.pdf

Yeah, not without problems it self but you're right: define it and we know what to do!
