After spending several days immersed in the field with a team of zoologists and botanists and watching them work, it has struck me that so often Science and Art are intertwined in a beautiful collaboration and connection.

Patterns, iterations and fractals are everywhere in the natural world. A moth's wings offer a delight of iterations as each magnification reveals the wonders beneath. Similarly, a fern's pinnae are a beautiful example of a fractal. As each insect and plant are examined, their symmetry and patterns are revealed in a kaleidoscope of colour and pattern.

The Bush Blitz experience has opened my eyes to the beauty present within the natural world. Take a closer you look and you too can marvel at the wonders of our earth.
