QUOTED IMAGE

Northern flicker

The red on its neck looks like another beak, makes it look like it's facing both ways!
Nice shot.

Whilst the shots are nice and your b+w conversions are nice, IMHO wildlife photos are, almost, always diminished when made into b+w. It's like something is missing. Am I alone in that thinking?

The rain really makes this a distinctive looking shot. I surely do like it.

I agree, but this isn't the thread for C/C ;)
Sometimes, rarely, B/W has its place.
