I have been away from the boards for a few weeks. Just back from Iceland and this is one of my favs so far. It just looks like this guy is having a ball!

A WOW photograph! Crisp and clear, well exposed and great action against a lovely neutral background.

Gail, we don’t see many Puffin-in-flight shots, and this is a real beauty. The head turn and wing position make it for me. Excellent work!

Got to love these little clowns of the bird world! Wonderful action - you would think it was snorkelling under water. A beautiful image, Gail.

How delightful- so whimsical and charming. It's an unusual view too-refreshing change form "puffin with fish/eels". :)
