STOPS ALONG THE WAY

25 Comments

Black-crownI have featured this photo before in colour but thought it would lend itself nicely to black and white. That and the fact that it’s too early for photo opportunities like this. We had a snowfall yesterday, a little early for April Fools’ Day and for the return of the herons.

    I have a Messel bird fossil from 50-million-years ago; it is a small bird with long legs.

  8. You were right, Belinda, the B/W comes across well here. It even captured the crown plumes outlining the back. Exquisite photo.

  10. You could have told us he’s all hunched over because that rain is turning into snow. His markings make a b/w photo very effective.
