Monochrome bird photography is our theme for this contest, and for many that removes one of the most characteristic and cherished features of birds - their colourful markings. As ever with black and white imagery there is a greater emphasis then on the form of the subject and their surroundings, and the subtler changes in the grayscale tonal shades. Some monochrome toning is permitted, as are images of any kind of bird, exhibiting any kind of behaviour.
