A lot of pictures I take of grackles look black and white until I do a lot of lightening. They are dark and are inevitably against a lighter background, so unless it’s a very tight shot, it looks more like a silhouette than a colorful photograph. The colors are in there, though. This time, I didn’t have to go looking for the colors because (ta da) the pictures are in black and white. No color required. What a relief!
