ENTER! Misc. Avatar Contest - Patterns of Nature

This avatar contest is about patterns found in the natural world: spirals of a hurricane, feathers of a peacock, fractal patterns of plants, the Fibonacci sequence in seashells, complex crystalline structures, cracks in salt flats, etc.

The usual avatar rules apply: no images from media, 150x150 pixels max dimensions, 140kb max file size.

Deadline for entries will be Friday, March 21st.

Good luck, everyone!

^ Oh, good. Yeah, I forgot to mention space, as well. I was hoping someone would include something like that.

Great entries so far, everyone.
