October Monthly 'No Prize' Photography Competition - Patterns in Nature

Welcome to the Monthly "No Prize" Photography Competition.

The idea behind the competition is that it will be run along the lines of a private photography club. All entries will be anonymous, but unfortunately we cannot do the same with the voting. We ask all members to not use the voting for tit for tat voting with your friends. Let's let the best photograph win.
Please DO NOT post in this thread until the voting opens.
If you have any questions or suggestions please use the Comments & Questions thread.

Please read the rules and method of entry below.
