Hexagons in Nature

It is very easy to assume that Maths is all numbers and calculations relating to measurements, money, science and engineering. The reality is that Mathematics comes from nature, and many exciting forms.

Let's skip past circles and spheres...we all know that nature likes curvy things. What is more fascinating is when we see things in nature that look like they had to be man-made. Today's Fun Facts is focused on the fun of Hexagons.
