I believe there is a mission for mathematics and nature, where this photo would certainly fit in.

Beautiful spot! It combines the tetragonal symmetry of the central flower with the spirals of the leaves.Besides this spirals show the typical sunflower type Fibonacci sequence. Very nice example of the interplay between life and mathematics

This is such a great example of the Fibonacci pattern showing up over and over again in nature. These leaves have 8 rows swirling in one direction, and 13 in the other. This is the same pattern (though not necessarily the same numbers) as a sunflower.

Katy is it in urban pond or in wild.
I just checked Lugwigia Genus plants are used in aquarium decoration...
