Recently I saw a flower that got me thinking about the 5-point star pattern in nature.  Besides the obvious starfish in the sea, I’ve noticed the star pattern frequently in flowers.  How many “stars” have you seen today?

About Pam
Richard and Pam lived in the San Francisco Bay Area 14 years (1987-1999 and 2008-2011). They lived in Florida 13 years previously, until returning in July 2011 to present. They hope their photography will encourage you to get out and discover nature's beauty in your own backyard, parks, and wild places.

  8. Nice series Pam. The most graphically interesting for me is the starfish making an infinity symbol.
