Big Lyapunov Exponent Bug

bigbug, originally uploaded by Doctor Free.
Fractal visually depicting the Lyapunov exponents of an iterated map of the plane. Generated with a fractal software laboratory written by Dr. Ronald Joe Record. I find it interesting that, even though this is a 2-dimensional object (the colors representing the Lyapunov exponent for a particular parameter), there seem to be shadows like it's a giant space bug hovering over a green landscape.

This is one of the images in my Lyapunov Exponent Flickr set.
