animated iterations - too much fun

Not much to this post - just playing with the GSP sketch that I pointed to earlier. These are just iterations, plus animation, plus tracing, with what I think are some nice results.

The 'colored Pythagoras tree' fractal below is a classic that I learned in a GSP workshop years ago, and it's based on one of the projects in the free booklet 101 Project Ideas for GSP. I'm sure there are some instructions for the whole thing floating around somewhere. [Update: See the Nov 15th blog post at sine of the times for some instructions on the basic tree.]

The image below is a later stage of the one at the top of the post - an iteration made up of pentagons and curves  - the bottom image shows what the first generation of this iteration looks like.
