Nature is the natural, physical, or material world or universe in its broadest definition. The term “nature” can refer to both physical occurrences and life in general. The study is a substantial, if not the sole, element of what we do. Human activity is typically thought of as a different category from other natural occurrences, despite the fact that humans are part of it.
The word nature comes from the Latin word natura, which means essential attributes, natural inclination, and denoted birth in ancient times. The concept of nature as a whole, the physical universe, is one of several extensions of the original concept. It began with pre-Socratic philosophers core applications of the word (though the word had a dynamic dimension at the time, especially for Heraclitus), and has steadily gained currency ever since.
Manufactured products and human interaction, for example, are not usually considered to be part of nature unless they are qualified as human nature or the totality of nature.

Reason why butterflies drink the tears of turtles
Turtle tears attract butterflies because they contain salt, particularly sodium, an essential ingredient that is limited in the western Amazon. Because it is almost 1,000 miles from the Atlantic Ocean, a major supplier of salt, and is shielded from wind-blown salt particles to the west by the Andes Mountains, this area has a lower sodium level than many other places on Earth.
Because butterflies are so fragile, they do not appear to harm turtles in any way, but they do make it more difficult for them to see. This is an example of commensalism, in which one species benefits while the other is unharmed but receives no benefit.
