Nature's Fractal by Asura-Valkyrie Nature's Fractal by Asura-Valkyrie
While I have always wanted to make fractals using the computer (like with Apophysis), I seem to have a bit of troble understanding the programing. Alas, it doesn't seem to be right now. However, I think that this could qualify for a fractal. A natural one at that. So who can guess what this is?

Brocoflower! A cross in the brassica group of the mustard family between broccoli and cauliflower! Bet you never thought that. You don't see too many of them and this was the first time I saw one. I don't know where you can get them?...

Wow. Amazing shot. I love how you let enough light to seep onto the photo, but keep enough out so that there was shading.
:orange: And did you know, that this plant is a type of Cauliflower? :orange:

Mmm....
Also can you could this type of cauliflower?
Have you tried it? Would the spikes still be pointy
or mush down due to the steamy heat?
So little questions, so little time...

It's got a taste somewhere between cauliflower and broccoli. Like a milder version of broccoli. And I believe it acts the same way as cauliflower when it's steamed. It doesn't turn mushy, but soft. However, like most vegetables, it will turn mushy in a steamer if it's cooked too long. :-)

I know! I love broccoli and cauliflower, but when its overcooked...its bleh. Anyways when they serve it in restaurants (if they do) what name does it go under? I think if you served it sliced on a white plate with perhaps small leaves surrounding it, or not, would make a good presentation...but I dont know..perhaps the fractal of it would be good enough...:)

Excellent macro! It does look like a fractal. Nice eye. Great color - has good eye appeal.

Amazing picture. In fact this Brocoflower develops its flowers in spirals. The amount of spirals is determined by Fibonnacci's series (1-1-2-3-5-8-13-21-34-...). I wonder which number of spirals there is. On the picture I can count 13 clockwise spirals so I presume there must be 21 counterclockwise. My :+fav:

Very cool, huh? I tried to see how far I could see the spirals, but they just kept going. Nature is very immese. Even at the smallest scale.

You can find those spirals not only in buds, but also in flowerheads (sunflower, daisy), position of seeds, pineapples, fir-cones, place of leafs around the stem etc...
