awsome B&W Craig! I love the composition. Was it done in PP or was there really 2 together?

@Cheryl: The scene was not altered in Photoshop. There were 2 together. The only thing I did in Photoshop was adjust levels, a slight crop, and the conversion. Thanks for the comment Cheryl!

Great subject for B&W, the deep tonal range here really suits the shot.

I would not have thought to try such a colorful bird in b&w - but it works wonderfully. Great capture - I love the composition....

A striking image! Love the eye - so perfectly focused. Such beautiful birds even without their usual pink color - the B&W allows the viewer to really concentrate on the details of the bird.
