Symmetry is all around us.
In chemistry and physics the concept of symmetry explains the structure of crystals or the theory of fundamental particles; in evolutionary biology, the natural world exploits symmetry in the fight for survival; and symmetry - and the breaking of it - are central to ideas in art, architecture, and music.
Mathematicians define four types of symmetry, as shown in this table:

Symmetry in nature may occur in natural growth patterns, such as the reflection pattern of butterfly wings, translation pattern of leaves, or rotation pattern of flower petals. Symmetry may also be found serendipitously in fleeting moments of birds in flight or through camera angles that show translation or reflection.
