Cool Maths in nature.

God or nature whichever one believes in is the greatest mathematician. I have even heard that God wrote this universe in Math.
Use this thread to share pages of Math stolen from nature.
I know about some:
•golden section in sunflower.
•fibonacci spiral in shells of molluscs.
•elliptic movement of planets.
...etc.
Have a happy time posting!!!!

Vi Hart has a really good piece on this. See especially the third video, which shows what really happens in the plants -- and why you don't always get $\varphi$.

A 'simple' consequence of Newton's universal gravitation (though discovered previously).
