Weekly Photography Challenge: Pattern

There are patterns all around us.
There’s knitting sewing crochet butterfly wings, the fractal patterns of leaves and mountains; grids, grates, sidewalks, windows.
The world is full of patterns and we love them.
We’re always on the lookout for patterns, and we build them into stories and into scientific theories.
Flocks of flying birds make patterns, from skeins of geese to ullalating clouds of corellas.
There was a flock of New Holland honey-eaters in the garden.
If there was a pattern it was hard to see.
They stay within calling distance of each other, but apart from that, seem to move around independently.
And continually.
Like a mob of school kids in a park or candy store.
See, I just found a pattern!
