The approach of a hawk to its prey. As the hawk descends, its best view is at an angle to its flight path; this angle is the same as the spiral's pitch. The approach of an insect to a source of artificial light. The arms of spiral galaxies. The Milky Way, the galaxy we are in, has several spiral arms. The arms of tropical cyclones, such as hurricanes.
