Pattern. Patterns are everywhere. Patterns are sometimes intentional and sometimes accidental. They can be decorative or merely a result of repetition, and often patterns can be in the eye of the beholder to discover them.
My image for this weeks challenge is a photo of a NZ Fantail (or Piwakawaka). These tiny birds flit and fly with amazing dexterity and are incredibly difficult to photograph well. Fortunately they do occasionally stop on a handy branch for a rest, and if your camera is quick enough, you *can* get a nice shot.
What I like about this image for the challenge is that if you look at a bigger size you can see amazing pattern detail in how all the feathers are laid out. I find my eyes can get quite lost trying to unravel where it goes 🙂
