Star flares in space telescope photos

Watched The Genius Geometry of the James Webb Space Telescope by Stand Up Maths from YouTube

What I assumed to be some aperture deal — the star points coming off of artsy shots by the James Webb and Hubble telescopes — are actually the result of the supports for a secondary focal mirror (both) and the hexagonal mirror shape (James Webb).

Geometric Stream Symphony

Water striders, Charley Harper, 1960

Love the shapes and shadows, and how a complex drawing can be created from such simple forms.

Reminds me a bit of these snow patterns.
