Symmetry in Nature

I am always amazed at nature. Nature so effortlessly creates patterns and symmetry that are beautiful and efficient at the same time. A lot of times as we hurry through our lives we miss the simple beauty that is right before us.

And nature is complex and full of contradictions, too: the leopard has spots, so it can camouflage more easily. The ladybird has bold colors and spots so it is easily seen and appears more dangerous.

In dry regions certain plants have striped leaves so they can collect water from sparse rainfall more easily. I love shooting photos in the desert and I took this photo in December at the Thousand Palms Oasis in the Coachella Valley. See the hypnotizing symmetry by our best architect, nature.
