Observing Nature

by Angelo Sganzerla, Violet Boulden
These stunning photographs capture an array of amazing symmetries and similarities you can find in nature—if you take the time to stop and observe.
Have you ever noticed that flamingoes and some varieties of rhododendron look rather alike? Or how the bright hues or a flower echo the sky at sunset? Have you ever noticed the affinity between a giraffe’s coat and the Nautilus shell? All this, and much more, is revealed in Angelo Sganzerla and Violet Boulden’s extraordinary photographic collection. Sganzerla’s enchanting images capture the incredible ways shapes, patterns, and colors repeat themselves throughout nature—sometimes in the most diverse and unexpected places. You’ll emerge with a newfound appreciation of our natural world.
