Sublime Symmetry

I travelled by helicopter and then boat to a remote part of Fiordland in the South Island of New Zealand where plant life remains untouched since the Jurassic Period. What I found was a series of botanical specimens reflecting a universal symmetry. They bring to mind images that the Hubble telescope captures from deep space. Quantum physics tells us that at the level of energy everything is connected and here I see the universe repeating itself in these plants.
