Not really intended to continue the “Fourth of July” theme, but that’s just what this happened to look like. I did this one while trying to come up with entries for the Fractal Contest 2000. They haven’t started accepting entries yet, but already I have some like this that didn’t quite make the cut of the three entries that I will eventually enter. There is a category this year for “minibrot” fractals, as well as a limited color category; this one would qualify for both. Obviously, this is a traditional Mandelbrot set fractal with the “stalks” orbit trap option turned on.
