Ageing has different effects, everything and every creature ages. My subject today a local pigeon, clearly showing the lines of age on his formerly pristine feathers. This weeks photo challenge calls for INTRICATE, a word that denotes Complexity and Detailing.

IntricateĀ [in-tri-kit]

1.Ā having many interrelated parts or facets; entangled or involved:
an intricate maze.
2.Ā complex; complicated; hard to understand, work, or make:
an intricate machine.

My take is shown in the brush stroke patterns of this Pigeon. From the crown to the soft under feathers all the patterns of nature are bared to the eyes.
