Romanesco Broccoli - Trippin out on Vegies

I just came across a picture that I thought was an alien life form. Turns out it is just broccoli. Actually it more resembles cauliflower and is also know as a Roman Cauliflower. If the shape is familiar that is because each of the buds are arranged in a logarithmic spiral. Log Spirals are often found in nature. Way to make eating your vegetables fun.
