Nature, the greatest artist.
 






What do you know about the colors of nature?

When it comes to the dazzling colors of nature, what you see is not always what you get; and sometimes what you get might not be what you expected.

The plant and animal kingdoms abound with bright colors,
from the lush green of photosynthesizing plants
 to the bold black and orange stripes of tigers.

Color plays a multitude of roles in the natural world,
used to entice, to camouflage, or to warn other creatures.

Colors signal harvest time, breeding conditions, and the change of seasons,
from the first greens of spring to the brilliant reds and browns of the fall.


 
       

 




Patterns in nature are visible regularities
of form found in the natural world.

These patterns recur in different contexts and can
sometimesbe modelled mathematically.

Natural patterns include symmetries, trees, spirals, meanders,waves, foams, tessellations, cracks and stripes.











 

 
Among non-living things, snowflakes have striking sixfold symmetry:
each flake is unique, its structure forming a record of the varying
conditions during its crystallization, with nearly the same pattern
of growth on each of its six arms.
