Black and white really allows one to focus on just how beautiful this little bird is. Great capture and processing.

Our nature preserve has a rehabilitated starling that roams around the welcome center and he's so sweet. Apparently, he imprinted on humans right away since he was saved as a fledgling. It's neat that we can get up close and see his beautiful markings and colors. This looks surprisingly good in b&w!
