Group Description

NATURE'S SPIRIT promotes good stewardship of nature and celebrates the beauty of nature photographed in the WILD.

All photos must be QUALITY NATURE shots photographed in the WILD.
Write a description or tag your shot with the subject's proper common and/or a scientific name.
Also, tag or geotag the location where the photo was taken.
Only images with a valid invitation and that meet the group's rules should be posted to the group.

Nature's Spirit has high standards and it's difficult to move up to Soar in Nature's Spirit.
So please give ONE or, better yet, MORE awards at the time you post.
The sweeper REMOVES shots of those who have not given at least one award for each photo posted.

Please COUNT YOUR OWN AWARDS.
If you have 10 awards, post in the For a Soar in Nature's Spirit Invitation.
If you have 9 awards and need just one more, please post to the Short One Award thread
and then give a Nature's Spirit award to one other shot within the thread.
