Cactus images

I must admit this is my favorite plant. Main reason is that in most cases they require a minimum of care. Small cactus that you can buy in almost all flower shops are cheap, easy to maintain and they often have beautiful flowers. Perfect plant! On the other had I like wild west landscapes and deserts and cactus's are one of their symbols. I also admire adaptation power of this plant which live in the places where there is no abundance water, and yet, it provides water for those who need it. Other interesting thing is that cactus can be large as a tree and also small to fit in your palm. So, not to bother you with my nonsense i will continue with new set of pictures - cactus pictures.
Yes they have spines. Those are leaves that evolved to another shape due to nature conditions.

Images of fractals

To explain fractals I need to cite the biggest authority on this subject - BenoĆ®t B. Mandelbrot who in his book "The Fractal Geometry of nature" defines fractals as: "a rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be split into parts, each of which is (at least approximately) a reduced-size copy of the whole,". Fractals are mathematical things but for me they symbolize infinity. Pictures of fractals are mostly computer generated but fractals also exist in nature, mostly in shapes of plants and shells. So this time I present you my choise of fractal images. Enjoy!
Beautiful 3D image of fractal construction.
