Black and White Wednesday

The Mallards were enjoying bath time in Birch Bay  - I thought they were spectacular in Black and White

I like it in black Nd white, too. I love to watch the reckless abandon with which birds bathe!

They have been splashing up a storm - I think they're so happy the ice is thawing and they have room to play!!

The 1st and 5th pictures are my favorites, JoAnn. I bet it was fun to sit, watch and photograph the ducks. The B & W is a good edit choice.

These are great in black and white! I especially like the look of the flying drops of water.

They look like they are having a wonderful time splashing and playing, just like kids.

Beautiful play of light round these water splashes. The duck is quite an active artist.

I always enjoy studying the vivid contrast in textures in your photos. They are even more pronounced in black and white! Very pretty series!

Yes, I like them in black and white too JoAnn. We have a pair on our beck here on the farm. They appear to be considering making a nest.

JoAnn, you have picked the perfect subjects for b/w photos. When they throw that water around it is like diamonds. Beautiful pics..Happy Thursday..Judy

They're absolutely stunning in B/W. I would never have thought so but it really works. x

They are so much fun to watch. I love their colors but you did very well with the black and white effect. Nice photos.
