Picture This #225 ~ Patterns In Nature

Many thanks to Marianne for hosting this week's challenge. She has chosen a theme which I'm sure everyone will have some photos for!! And as a bonus, this week we can post up to 5 photos!! It's certainly a favourite theme for me, as many of the photos I take involve the patterns that occur in nature. Sorry for being a little predictable, but I've chosen some of my favourite nature patterns, which you've probably seen before. 

1) Echinacea. 
Echinacea Heart 1

2) Reed Reflection patterns
Reedflection 3

3) Bengal Tiger

4) Leaf Patterns
Illuminated Leaf

5) Bryce Canyon rock formations

  1. Thank you Mitch for playing along. Great ones, even if predictable ;-)

    Incredible rock formations where you can see each layer so clearly, love it. Your tiger looks bored, what did you tell him? The pattern in the leaf is exquisite. I love the reed reflections, I never get tired of looking at your water reflection shots. The macro flower is beautiful, I simply cannot seem to master that.

    ps shot most of mine this morning LOL

    I will be back later to see what else happens here, I sure hope lots. :-)

  3. Utterly lovely bulb .- love the irridescent green. Beautiful and serene shot with the gently rippling waves and the reflected reeds. The Tiger is a majestic creature. Love the intricacy of the veins on the leaf. A truly marvellous mountain landscape.

  4. Hi, Mitch! Wonderful echinacea macro. Love the color and, of course, the pattern. The next shot is, as you might know, one of my all time favorites. Happy to see it again. Tiger looks content (nice teeth), veins in the leaf amazing, and the Bryce formations always look other-worldy to me. Love the one formation sticking up in the left foreground.

    1. Thanks Benni :-)) I'm endlessly fascinated by the patterns in Echinacea plants, you'll no doubt be seeing more of them in the future!! LOL. If it wasn't for the pine trees growing among the formations, you could almost believe Bryce was on a different planet :-))

    1. Thanks Debby :-)) The good thing about Busch Gardens is that the big cats are in big open enclosures, not a bar of a cage in site. Not only better for the animals, but better for the photographer too!!
