Challenge has finished
We love photographing the rich colors of birds. Work with a colorful bird (like a parrot) and create an interesting black and white entry. (No sepia, no color please). Entry must state the color(s) of the bird in the title or description and the color must not be a black or white bird. It must have other color to fit the challenge. I feel voting helps the challenges, so this challenge is open to those who have done some voting. See RULE 2.

16th place
Deep Golden Yellow body, Feathers of all shades of Blue and the top of the head deep green are only few of the beautiful colors of this amazing Macaw. I am lucky to be able to capture some those in this shot. Very hard to appreciate all this in B & W mode but here in an endeavor, hopefully will not be wasted...
