Winged Shadows and Red Petals

Today's post is all about mixing the cold with the hot and the muted with the bright. It is of course #redmonday and also #monochromemonday on the steem blockchain. What better monochomre subject can there be but shadows? @melinda010100 just also happens to be hosting her fantastic weekly #shadowcontest.
And so do I got shadows. Bird shadows to be exact. Tons of them. The Museum of Vancouver is hosting the Wild Things, a collection of poetry, installation art, and taxidermy, of course. As you do.
I complain birds never stand still long enough for me to get any good shots. Melinda gets them by the dozen. But I found a loop hole around my limitations. The show's shadows were an exhibit in themselves. Mulitple light sources served to double, triple, quadruple even the dark forms. The vulture above looks like a line of hunched-over old men.
You got shadows overlapping shadows and even a fluffy-tailed squirrel makes a cameo over on the right. He somehow manages to look menacing with the magic monochrome.
Too much dark ... let's throw in some more color for kicks.

Alright, steemians. Now I am going to need your helps. Which bird shadow picture should I enter? Melinda? What. That's cheating. Well then. don't tell me what you think.
There is still time to enter.
I will close out with one last shot of red.
