C&C: Raptors in Monochrome

Some bird photos (mostly raptors) that I processed for the Wild Art POTY contest - Monochrome category. One of my entries has made it to the Top 100: https://www.wildartpoty.com/monochrome-top-100

Osprey at a millpond, Oregon

Taken a moment after the above pic

As this osprey flew toward me, I saw an opportunity to frame him among the branches of this tree in the foreground. Thankfully, Olympus AF did not fail me!

The Three Graces: tree swallows. I kept the sky a bit darker on purpose, to make this look like a faded painting.

Crested Serpent-Eagle, Pench tiger reserve, India

Bonus pic - processed but not entered. Intermediate Egret, Pench tiger reserve, India

Your feedback would be most welcome!

"Do not cut down forests where tigers dwell, or banish tigers from the forest. Forests will perish without tigers, and tigers perish without forests. For as forests shelter tigers, tigers protect the wilderness."
- The Mahabharat, Udyoga Parva (Book 5), Chapter 29, 47-48
