Patterns in Nature
Are you guilty of giving nature only a quick, casual glance? It’s so easy to do as you rush through your daily activities, but you are missing some very interesting sights by not taking time for a closer look.

Take a look at a few we have selected and see how many you can identify. If you have trouble recognizing some of them, turn to the answers.
