Wild Weekly Photo Challenge : Black and White

The challenge this week almost had me stumped, I see everything in colour and find it hard to visualise the world in black and white or even the many shades of grey… But I enjoy the challenges from “Let’s be wild” so have thought about what I can submit this week.

Then I had one of those light bulb moments…. Many of the Australian birds are black and white…

So this is my contribution this week….

  1. Joan and Terry Watson

    Just back from Evans Head, so peaceful and heaps of those graceful birds, pelicans.Loved the photo’s once again.


  2. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and liking my post. Your photographs are amazing. I look forward to seeing more of them and reading about your travels.


  3. my goodness – what fantastic photos!!


  4. I like the magpies, they’re very different to the ones I recognise here.


  5. Beautiful series! Love the Pelican on the water.


  6. That Japanese artwork – is it an egret? Beautiful! All the birds are great.


  7. Magpies are a particular favourite of mine although I know that they have such a bad reputation but I always enjoy watching them


    • We had a family of magpies that we “belonged” to they visited every day and would bring their babies each year to introduce them to us and they would sit on the deck singing and warbling to us, they have such a beautiful song, we loved them, that is 2 of the babies in the photo. Then when we went away for a year travelling they had, sadly, moved on when we arrived back home


  8. Sper photos, Pommepal. Love the ‘graceful landing’ one. 🙂


  9. Lovely – to be able to see those birds, the pelican shot are very clear sharp photos. Beautiful


  10. Lovely photos again Paulin!


  11. The pelicans look incredible in black & white!


  12. You always pick the best pictures, Pauline. I love pelicans. I remember doing a book report on them when I was eight years old, and I’ve loved them since. That beak!


    • G’day Maddie thanks for dropping by I love to watch the pelicans skim over the water and then land so gracefully leaving a big spray of water behind them
