Weekly Photo Challenge: Pattern

Click to see larger image which clearly shows the feather details and patterns

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 🙂

      Thanks, I was surprised to find them in the middle of the Botanic gardens with so many people around!

  3. Lovely – the stripes of white going across the tail feathers, wings, AND the face and breast.
