Snowflakes are a good example of the fact that thermodynamic entropy isn't the same as "order" as perceived by humans. The snowflake has higher entropy (2nd law) than the water + air system that formed it, even though it looks far more organized.

You could say the spontaneous formation of crystals is order out of chaos, something out of nothing. Of course it isn't, but superficially that's what it looks like.
