I love reflections. Usually nearly the same, but not quite. And looking at ourselves in a mirror is quite odd, as that is not how others see us. We will always be reversed. But then I never see myself as others see me, anyway!
But I do love the symmetry in nature. Leaflets that go neatly opposite each other, or alternately. Never one out of place. Petals fitting round the centre of flowers. And when we start looking through even a magnifying glass, let alone a microscope, life is simply amazing!
These trees in the photo are alders, and small finches and tits love the cones. If I am very lucky, a little flock of mixed finches and tits will be chattering through as I go pass, intent on their feeding, ignoring the galumphing world of humans!

I love the symmetry in nature too. It truly is astounding, all the varieties that there are of plants and wildlife.

I am enjoying your posts. You have a gift for photography, and reflective commentary.

(Ever thought about putting a book together???)
