Natural Fractals

These pictures of lightning bolts are clear examples of fractals, each of the small lightning bolts look very similar to the original lightning bolt, they repeat over and over and get smaller everytime they but very similiar to the original, which is one of the basic characteristics of fractals.

This video shows that even though lightning bolts are dangerous natural marvels it doesn't explain the mathematical significance of lightning strikes, and fractals do.
