NATURE STORIES

One of the most important parts of the Nature definition is the specifical requirement that the storytelling value of a photograph be given more weight more than the pictorial quality. 

Basically this means that 'pretty pictures' are not enough - the image should also provide as much information as possible about things such as the life-cycle and behaviour of the subject. Of course, this is much easier to do with animals and insects than it is with botanical specimens or landscapes.  But even inanimate objects such as rock formations have a story to tell.
