Thank you for being here whether you are a Member yet or not!
We welcome you and your support! :thanks:

A GRAND Welcome to ALL of Our NEW MEMBERS!

:squee:  :clap: :clap: :clap:  :squee:

And a HUGE thank you to our loyal Members who have been submitting your fantastic
Nature Work to our Group for a long time now.
Without you, we just simply wouldn’t be here. :aww:


Thank you so much to ALL the amazing MEMBERS (and Admins.) who returned to vote on our main folders for these months! :love:


Let’s continue to submit our own BEST QUALITY work, enjoy it, improve upon it, enjoy the work of others, and Nature in general. It’s what it’s all about-
combining our love of Art with our love of Nature, and coming together under that commonality!

Without further ado...

Please Enjoy The Voted Top Submissions of MAY & JUNE.

[:note: Each section/folder has a small group, at the VERY TOP, where those had received slightly more votes. These will be copied to the Featured Folder, AND eventually :+fav:'d by our :points: account at Unframed-Nature-PTS
The others are in no particular order.]

:community:Becoming A Part of Unframed-Nature's Admin. TEAM:community:

We still have a couple of OPENINGS- specifically for "SUPPORTING TEAM ADMINISTRATORS" for our
Admin. Team at Unframed-Nature
:note: So if you would be interested in becoming a part of our Wonderful Admin. TEAM,
PLEASE :note:NOTE:note: ME, TeaPhotography.

:note: You may want to LOOK at our APPLICATION, first, and answer as many questions as you can or feel like answering.

It is just SO much more INFORMAL than it looks- really! :nod: :aww:
It just gives us, the Admins., a little idea, as well as YOU, our newest Admin., a general idea of things. :aww:
Administrator Application for Unframed-NatureUnframed-Nature's Application for Administrative Position
Accepting Applications for Administrator Positions at Unframed-Nature is now: OPEN!
Before you apply, please know that volunteering for a large and active group here on dA, such as Unframed-Nature is a real and true commitment, which will take up some of your time on at least a weekly basis, maybe more.
Unframed-Nature is special in many ways, but from an Administrative view point, it is very special because we have always had good luck with our current Administrators, most of which have been with the Group, as Administrators, for a very long time.
We are a very friendly Team, both with each other, and with the Members, as well. This means when we do have to decline works, we do give a reason, and we are friendly about it.  It means, that upon occasion if there is something that we disagree about within the Admin. Team, we disagree nic

:note: And you do NOT have to be qualified in every area, AT ALL, to become a part of the team!
I'm definitely not! :giggle:

So think about it, and if you are a Member of our group, and would like to be involved a bit more,
WE just might be the GROUP for YOU! :la:

:thanks: :heart: :thanks:

:pencil:Unframed-Nature's UpComing News Articles :pencil:
:bulletpink: After this article here, we have another very special thank you feature News Article, due very soon. It should be out, at the end of July. :aww:

:trophy: UPCOMING CONTESTS :trophy:

Our NEXT BIG Contest will take place in October, probably run about 5 weeks, and probably be Autumn-themed. Keep your eyes OPEN! :eyes:

Double Paws by Kawiku


Double Paws by Kawiku

I hope you will enjoy the various unique aspects of this particular monthly theme!
We've not done any of our themes this way before! So... well, HAVE FUN!
:iconlawooplz: :iconcatlaplz: :iconlawooplz: :iconcatlaplz: :iconlawooplz:

Double Paws by Kawiku Up to TWO Entries PER MEMBER. (One is fine. TWO is MAX.)
Double Paws by Kawiku OPENS: IT IS CURRENTLY OPEN!! :eager:
Double Paws by Kawiku CLOSES: AUG. 31st, same time we close the other folders.
YES, this theme is running for (basically) TWO MONTHS!!
Double Paws by Kawiku OPEN to ALL MEDIA which could and would depict a CLOSE-UP of TWO LIKE objects of NATURE such as, but NOT limited to: TWO ladybugs, TWO leaves, TWO flower petals, TWO of SAME flowers, TWO animal or insect ( :bulletred:NOT human) eyes, ears, paws, etc. ( :bulletred: but keep it clean! ),  TWO of ANY SAME WHOLE insect, mollusk, bird, or animal... as long as they are ALIVE, of course, and as long as they are CLOSE UP, and :bulletred: NOT in the distance, such as NOT in a land or water 'Scape!!!

Double Paws by Kawiku :bulletred: 'Scapes would not be fitting for this particular THEME, because it's about Close-ups.

I realize the actual theme itself might not be the most unique we've ever done, because we have had "two of a kind" before, but the difference is this DOES have to be a CLOSE-UP.
Everything ELSE about this particular THEME is VERY different!

Double Paws by Kawiku If you are using Photography for this Theme, of course you can actually use "Macro" :nod: but I do not want to "limit it to just Macro"- however, IT MUST BE UP CLOSE!!! :D

Double Paws by Kawiku Media that would work well for this THEME could be: Traditional and Digital Paintings, Photo-manips- but close-up ones of course, Photography, Animations, Fractals that depict two like natural items, even if they are abstract, even Literature if the subject was about TWO twin-like subjects of Nature, even if they are abstract. Even Literacture could work, if it was about TWO SAME ITEMS IN NATURE! :aww:

This list is not necessarily complete... If not sure, ASK! :D

Double Paws by Kawiku :bulletred:IF there is only ONE object of Nature present in the submission, it will NOT be accepted to this Theme. It will be declined!
If there are three, four, OR more... it will NOT be accepted to this Theme! It will be declined.
Double Paws by Kawiku :bulletred: If your submission shows random things... or two or whatever number of things that are DIFFERENT, it will NOT be accepted to this THEME.
The TWO subjects must be TWINS, the SAME, as in very similar!
:) :thanks:




We are even doing are Prizes in a Unique Way, this time, for our Unique Theme... :la:

:trophy: FIRST: 150 :points:
and we will DOUBLE it!! -another 150 :points: -to an active GROUP of your choosing who has a current points widget up for collecting points! They don't have to be an affiliate of ours.
We will credit you, as the donor- winning the points for them! :la:

:note:  We have added TWO winning places more to this theme, than what we usually have for our monthly themes. :aww:

:note: Also in case you didn't get it... :XD:
We don't usually DOUBLE the winning points... So if you are thinking about submitting one or two entries... start thinking about a wonderful GROUP you really like, who would appreciate the points! :la:
They do NOT have to be an affiliate,
BUT, they DO have to be active, and they DO have to have a widget for collecting points.

I do hope this will be a FUN Monthly (spanning TWO months) THEME for the rest of the Summer!


:icondonatepointsgreenplz: POINTS for Our Group! :icondonatepointsgreenplz:

From the bottom of our HEARTS, :heart: we thank you, as your generous acts do not go unnoticed!


:bulletblack: We just paid out points for our FIRST (of TWO) BIG Contest of the year.

:bulletblack: The NEXT BIG CONTEST of the Year takes place around this OCTOBER!

:bulletblack: We will continue with our Monthly Themes, which are much smaller point prizes.

:bulletblack: We are about to begin a new and unique kind of Monthly Theme, which will span July and August, and we are doubling the points!

:bulletblack: We sometimes use points for other special occasions or circumstances, on a smaller scales.

:bulletblack: At this point, we DO plan to renew our SUPERGROUP Status THIS DECEMBER.

These are some of the things that your generous points help us to be able to accomplish. Thank you again for your fabulous help!

To help us to achieve these plans and goals, if you do have a few points to spare, feel free to donate to our group, HERE:
:points: Unframed-Nature-PTS :iconunframed-nature-pts: :points:

:star: Any point helps, and you will read there, how our donors are rewarded! :star:

:iconlookoutplz: A Couple NEW Changes to Be Aware Of... :iconlookoutplz:

:bulletred: I am needing to try something: We are going to take the regular Nature folders and have them run BI-MONTHLY. That means voting every OTHER month, and "TOP SUBS of TWO MONTHS AT A TIME" News Articles, etc.

WHY? The main reason this is coming about is because, since last Summer, I have been forced to delete folders at our group, which has really broken my heart, since the first time and every time.
Periodically, I am NOT allowed to create NEW folders until I delete OTHER folders. It's a pain in the neck, it's awful, and it makes the job extra difficult. :hmm:
Apparently there IS a limit, and we are definitely at our capacity.

By doing this, it will at least slow things down and I won't have to worry about it, quite as often. :aww:

As a side bonus, I have realized it will help with less work for me, for a couple of reasons... less time opening and closing folders, and less time working on spreadsheets and creating news articles-

In general, in life, I am burning the candle at both ends, AND the middle, so this might help a bit. ;)

:bulletred:  Every OTHER month, when we are transitioning to new folders, and we are temporarily closed, instead of being closed for a few hours, I am going to have us be TEMPORARILY CLOSED for the first week- which means will will re-open on March 8th, then May 8th, then July 8th, then Sept. 8th, ...

This gives us a lot more breathing room, both for group purposes- time for work on the group itself, and for any personal breathing room, too. :aww:

You were always there for me man, I don't think dA would be the same if I hadn't met you. You were the one talking to me and making me laugh when my only friend left for another website. We've been best friends ever since and I want it to stay that way. You're the best > u <

Thank you ALL,
Members and hard working Admins. alike!

Pink Heart by TheBamas A serious and :heart:HEART-FELT:heart: THANKS to ALL of my fellow-Admins., and especially to ALL the ones who were able to be here as much as they could during the bit that I was away mostly the last of June, and a tid during the first week or so of July... it was sudden for me,
but the wheels here, kept on turning, and upon return, we kept on adjusting, and we continue onward.

Any time and effort, that is put in here is so sincerely appreciated, more than they could realize!

There are some extremely loyal Admins., with my utter realization that we all have challenges, and we can't all be here, all the time. :aww: But all in all, there is a certain level of care and concern, that I feel from these Admins., and that is why we do our best to work together, and do what we can when we can.

There are just no words great enough to express my utter gratitude for these fellow-Admins. :love:



I just love our TEAM!
