As for animals, some of them can be pretty curvy, like these cute little seahorses with their curved tails and curved bellies.

Flamingos have such long necks they tend to walk around with them in a curved position. Check out the little duck at the bottom left, he’s got some curved neck going too!

Of course human beings can create a lot of curves too. Check out this beautiful chandelier in the lobby of the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego. It’s full of curves!

    • There are definitely more curves out there than straight lines and sharp corners. Spotting shapes in nature is a lot of fun. I mean, look at the perfect hexagons that bees create in the hive. How cool is that? And yes, it’s all straight lines and corners there.
