As with the Hamerkop, I can’t decide which versions I like best. For the photo above I think I prefer the color version.

For the rest, I think I prefer the Black and White versions.

The birds look mean regardless of whether they are shown in color or B&W.

Eh . . . maybe there is not enough contrast between the birds when seen in B&W. Perhaps the color photos are better in that regard.

Although, the B&W photos do look better when viewed in the larger versions, either by clicking on the above, or seeing the full resolution version at SmugMug.

All of the Honolulu Zoo photos are available for viewing in their own SmugMug gallery HERE, under the Category Feathers & Fur.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

    I have to agree with you that the color looks better. These birds are all about their color and it seems a bit weird for them to be deprived of it.

    Actually, the first three photos have enough contrast in them to make them stunning in B&W. I looked at the color ones again and am still captivated with the B&W treatment. The answer, for me, is that I like both the color and B&W photos. Well, that settles that for me. Well done, E.

    There’s something quite dreamlike about the b & w photos that I like.
