Playing around with B&W

Once again, I have been using Nik Software plug-in for LR5 called Silver Effex Pro 2.0 to convert some wildlife images to black and white.  I have been wanting to see the difference when texture is the key communicator versus color.

Here are the results:

The buffalo images were lacking in color but after the conversion they found major new life.  I am really enjoying wildlife images in B&W because I feel like contrast and texture can communicate so much!
