In nature- if a quarter of a circle is placed inside each of these resulting squares and the quarter circles are connected, we have a continuous spiral called a logarithmic spiral also called the golden spiral.

An example of a Fibonacci sequence making spiral patterns in nature.   This is also a fractal because each floret is an identical but smaller version of the whole thing & this makes the spirals easy to see.
