Anyone you's ever spent any time looking at fractals will love the "gardens in a petri" post on the Pruned blog.

Nature rawks!

i KNEW it was familiar !
Quoting the blog you linked:
"All images come from the laboratory of Prof. Eshel Ben-Jacob of the Tel-Aviv University,"

Eshel Ben Yaakov was my statistical mechanics proffesor, while I studied my BSC in physics 4 years ago.
I saw these pictures every day on his office door, and had the pleasure of seeing these bacterial petri dishes myself..

Small world.
