I had this image ready for blog in color. Behind the squirrel, which I found in Lincoln Park Zoo, was a green tree with yellow flowers. Reasonably further away, so it was thrown into interesting bokeh, providing backdrop for the image. I liked it. And then I thought- maybe it contrasts too much with the calm colors of this critter? I tried black and white conversion, and loved it right away. Now the photograph is so much simpler.
