10 Stunning Illustrations Of Symmetry In Nature



Sunflowers

This is a beautiful example of Fibonacci symmetry. Fibonacci symmetry consists of a numerical sequence of 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, and so on. Each number is calculated by adding the two proceeding numbers together, which the spiral pattern of seeds within sunflowers is based upon.

Nautilus Shell

The shell of a nautilus is another interesting example of Fibonacci symmetry in nature. The repeated spiral pattern of the shell allows the nautilus to grow without changing its shape.
