Jago, I have to say I enjoy your photo blogging (and also your writing, come to that).

Re checkerboards in nature, have you encountered the idea of cellular automata?

Thanks Charlie. The link took me back to watching Life on the grey screen of an Amstrad in the Eighties. When I raised the question I could half see something at the back of my mind with the same kind of pattern, and there it is, Conus textile.
