CB&WPC: Animal Heads

For Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week, with the topic of Heads or Facial Features, I am featuring animals of Ngorongoro Crater.

Photos in black & white (or nearly so) allow one to see details that normally wouldn’t stand out, such as the individual hairs on this vervet monkey’s head:

The horns on this male Thomson’s gazelle are quite spectacular.

Close-ups of heads emphasize an animal’s facial expression, such as this African buffalo chillin’ in the grass…

or this zebra foal’s curiosity.

Profiles of heads show their contours, such as this beautiful lioness…

…and the self-satisfied expression of a hyena who has just finished a meal.

Finally, I can’t resist including this picture of Van Gogh’s eye from a self-portrait (taken at Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam).
