Weekly Photo Challenge: Intricate Fibonacci


The Weekly Photo Challenge is intricate.

I have always been fascinated by the complex Fibonacci numbering system found in nature. This intricate mathematical arrangement occurs everywhere.

When the spirals in my pineapple are counted, the two sets are found to be adjacent Fibonacci numbers.

The sunflowers in our garden have an intricate Golden Spiral seed arrangement.

  2. Bringing in the Fibonacci sequence certainly makes this post intriguing. It’s certainly looking at nature deeper than just the beauty. Or it is the intricacy of its perfection that makes nature beautiful.

  3. Well, darn, I haven’t been Fibonacci-hunting yet this morning, but I did enjoy both your photos and your mathematical musings. πŸ˜‰ This sort of intricacy is why I have to believe in a Creator (not trying to start any arguments, just opining.) It’s beyond my imagination to think that all these things just somehow became so incredibly intricate on their own.

    Have a wonder-filled weekend!
