        Isn´t it amazing how different birds shots look in black and white compared to color ?  I always enjoy seeing the difference when processing bird shots.

        This was taken last night – while shooting the loons on the lake a very brave dunlin did all it could to catch and keep my attention – probably to divert it from its nest close by.

        Shake it baby

          Yes i fully agree they can look splendid just like this one you posted , i always have a look to see how they look in mono , i find crows can look magic in black and white , ravens , rooks , and the  beautiful jackdaw work a treat 🙂 , these are mostly what i see round this way but there is lots of waterfowl that will and do look fantastic when seen in black and white.

          Lovely shot Elin and thanks for showing 🙂

              Elin, love the way the patterns in the bird mimic the pattern in the rock – great capture and will be a great Throwdown – thank you for starting it

                        Thanks Belinda 🙂 The top shot is absolutely fantastic ! Great story, movement, composition work very well in B&W. The lower shot is lovely.

                                  Ah one of my faves – love their fierce looking eyes – and hairdo on a windy day. Lovely shot Patrick.

                                            A golden plover male that made a great effort to stay in front of my lens earlier today. Probably diverting attention away from his nest.

                                                  Stunning shot – is it an egret ? The good thing about clear blue skies in the background is how you can play with them.

                                                      @elax, yup, it’s a great egret.  blue skies are great for the background, but they can make it hard to get a good exposure.  i lost a few feather details on the egret’s backside.

                                                                                                                                I not sure how much I like it in B&W. Here’s what it looks like in color:

                                                                                                                                I made the picture in early September and I think that the Fall color and mood set by the golden hour light in the background gets lost.

Maybe its the expression in the owls face that becomes more noticeable – the look in its eyes as if its thinking “who the hell is this one-eyed guy”

Late nesting and late chicks can be a problem if winter sets in early. Here the nesting is very late for some species – we had an unusually bad snowstorm late in June that lasted for nearly a week, resulting in thousands maybe tens of thousands of dead migratory birds. Beyond tragic but not the first time in our history. How is your refurbishing coming along ?
