    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. :bolian::techman:

    I was about to do space before my current entry. It always fascinates me.
