Wildslewe Alle wildlewe kan in die natuurkategorie ingeskryf word, maar alle natuur geld nie as wildslewe nie. Wildslewe word nie beperk tot voels en diere nie.

Die hoofonderwerp moet ‘n lewende organisme wees. Gevolglik kwalifiseer ‘n natuurlandskap nie vir wildslewe nie. Netso geld foto’s van dieretuindiere of ander diere, insekte, kreature in gevangeskap of gekontroleerde omstandighede soos ‘n ateljee, wat natuursubjekte is, nie as wildlewe nie en kan gevolglik nie in’n wildlewekategorie ingeskryf word nie
