So did I realize that while changing the ISO to 400 I had also changed the new camera to monochrome? Well I did eventually, when I got home and plugged the camera into the computer.
But really, a Pied-billed Grebe is basically monochrome anyway. This one was hooting. It sounded like an 8-year old imitating a gorilla. (I asked my son, who is 8, to imitate a gorilla and I assure you it's exactly the same sound.)
Awww, Mallard babies. They are also not terribly colourful, so B&W will suffice. This momma duck had 13(!) ducklings.Just for the heck of it, colour. I liked the pose of this American Goldfinch. He looks like a tennis ball.
One learns from one's mistakes.
