I'm always amazed of the patterns seen in nature. The patterns in butterflies and moths wings are amongst my favorites. What are yours?


What do you see in the following butterflies wing patterns:

Almost a Rorschak test? I like the fractals and spirals of flowers. Love the pattern of broccoflower.

I see a duck on the wings of the first one, Margaret! Are these photos by chance from the butterfly house at Frederik Meijer Gardens? I was there today and really enjoyed the butterflies sailing through the air and the wonderful greenery that I hope will be coming our way soon.

I also love to see those butterflies and moths in your garden and you can also attract butterflies even your own garden by planting colorful flowers and butterflies also play an important role in your garden especially when it comes in polination.

hmm very nice photos, these butterflies are very beautiful and colorful, I always love the butterflies because they looks pretty and attractive. Anyhow I know its not a child play to take shots of butterflies. Because they are very sensitive. Thanks for sharing your work and I love it.

If at first you don’t succeed, call it version 1.0

Love the math reference to fractals in nature.
