Good thing I shot some wildlife this weekend, although it's certainly nothing exotic.

The comments you have so far seem divided.. Some like color others like the way it is.. I think this photograph belongs the way it is.. It's an example of wonderful photography and great use of b/w

I think this would have shown better in color. It is hard to make out the details on the face. Very nice concept though.

This photo has lost points with me because of contrast issues - sadly the distinction between the head and body of the bird is lost in b & w - I don't know whether this would have been the case in colour.
