Mini Black & White Challenge

Was looking at a few of my flower photos and started to play a bit and thought that they would make some very interesting Black & White images.  

I love Black and Whites … while I truly enjoy color images there is a lot of time that I can see in black and white.  I know that sounds rather strange.  But that is one of the first things I noticed when I started in photography.  Something speaks to me when it is in black & white, I think maybe it is because the color is taken away and you really have to look at an image.
