challenge on nature photography - day 5

For my Day 5 image of my #challengeonnaturephotography, I am revisiting the greenhouse at RHS Wisley that is just outside London's M25 ring road, in Surrey. This is an overhead shot of a fabulous and rather small succulent that just cried out to me to be photographed.

I call this 'fractals in nature'. I love finding patterns in plants and the natural world more widely. I find it just fascinating how beautifully harmonious, structurally sound and aesthetically pleasing patterns can both be innately 'understood' by plants and creatures and described by complex mathematical formulae.
