Where is the +2 ? I got 4 large equilateral hexagons + 5 elongated mini-hexagons + 1 acute mini-hexagon in the center + 4 internal, "parallelohexagons" + 2 (oooooh! nevermind!) mini-equilaterals + ?? + ?? for a total of 16....
Upon reevaluation, I found 2 more acute hexagons in the center for a total of 18...
It is increasing every time I see. Now it is 20. Is it a magical hexagon.
There are 18 hexagons and you got it first, wqaindia. Nice job! For certain classes of diagrams like this, you can develop formulas. This diagram was made simple enough to just count by hand using a little insight and intuition.
Congrats, WQAIndia. Calculus-Geo, I'm glad I didn't spend 2 days looking for more than 18!!!

Yikes, I missed the 2 horizontal arrows! Revision, thus: 4+5+4+2+2+1=18
