Designed by Nature

Symmetry in nature

Designed by Nature. Untouched by human hand.

This seed pod of Sterculia foetida had fallen on my terrace parapet wall as you see it. I just pulled out my phone camera, shot it and cropped the image. Nature’s designs are amazing.

The tree is also called poon tree or Peenari  or Kuthira pudukkan in Tamil.

I had posted a picture of a similar pod 13 years ago on Flickr https://www.flickr.com/photos/shutterbug_iyer/388126013/in/photolist-AifkP-4rdkFa

At that time I did not know the identity.

The fallen seeds attract  the red bug in hoards.
