Astonishing how they take this regular shape by nature. Usually we think of them just as a random splash, from our normal perception. Interesting photo series, and kind of pretty too. It reminds me of glass art objects at times.

Nature is all about symmetry and regular patterns, think about spider webs, snow flakes, branches and leaves, flower heads :)
