These are photos of trees and plants from around where i live. They are run through a graphics program to mirror the image and you then put the 2 mirrored bits together and you get a fractal. See if you can see the spirits in each one?

My favorite plant spirits are those of the Agave.  I also like the spirits of corn, potatoes, sugar cane... and probably several other plants.

The one i work with the most is Paper Bark spirit.

 

I also am getting closer to Bankisa spirits. They have very thorny leaves. When new these leaves are so soft. Bankisa is taking a long time to get to know. I suppose their thorny leaves shows that they are very protective.

Ross I think you have captured the essence of the tibouchina flower. I have no problem with calling it a spirit!  It is one!

 

Also love the Banksia - looks like a giant menacing insect.

Something that looks vaguely human toward the top. There are all kinds of images if you look at it.

Mexican friend of mine said the tequila made with a worm in it is for the tourists. He says good tequila has no worm. I agree.

 

Love the photos of the wood spirits too. I like the first one, looks like it has horns.
