Images of undisturbed subjects in their natural environment. All subject types.
I've been doing macro photography for a while so I thought I would have a go at something different. Green Hairstreaks are attractive little butterflies but blend in with the greenery so I thought I would have a go at taking them using an infra red converted camera. They do stand out well then but is it nature photography ?.

"...undisturbed subjects in their natural environment." A wild hairstreak photographed in IR totally qualifies!
Interesting and attractive, for sure!
But I'm thinking this is near-IR, so dark means absorbent at those wavelengths. I would not be surprised if in thermal IR the wings showed up as a little warmer than ambient.
