I'm not entirely sure if this counts as a fractal or not, but it is definitely natural.
This is a famous image from Arches National Park in Utah.

The Saguaro Cactus is found only in the Sonoran Desert.



And to show a little more variation of form, here is another example.

Cholla Cactus, aka "jumping cactus" because if you even get near one of these things,
the spines will find their way onto you or your clothes.

Celibon:
my anti-virus program gives warning of the image address in your previous post.

I know the warning came from that link. But because you posted the link (and obviously got no warnings doing so) I'm concerned of your PC all the same. My AV gives the warning every time my browser refreshes this thread.

Ditto, my antivirus tool also gives me the serious warning about the Trojan infection
when I only come into this thread, and a Celiboncanvari's pic is going to show up.
Actually, my AV does not allow this picture to be displayed at all.
I have to leave this thread, because my AV is still showing messages about infection and giving sound signals.

Sorry if I've caused trouble. What is interesting is that my own personal computer seems to have no virus. (I tried searching with so many antivirus programs so many times and so often!)
I have no idea why this happens. Anyway, if you say so, I'll delete all my posts and leave the thread myself.
