On my vacation in Iceland last year, I would have been very upset had I not seen any puffins. Fortunately, there were huge numbers of them, including this one who posed quite nicely for me!

It was very nice of him to pose, and for you to give him his 15 minutes of fame in this way

Thatís actually a question I pondered myself. Iím pretty sure they must be able to see straight ahead pretty well, despite their eyes being on the sides of the head, as they donít appear to turn their heads when flying. It does make me wonder about the structure of their eyes, though.

Great shot

I'm truly envious, these wee characters have been on my bucket list for quite some time.

Circumstances always seem to conspire against me, I think this years opportunities are rapidly fading away too.

Thanks! They are something I have wanted to see for as long as I can remember, and last year was my first, and I certainly hope not last, opportunity. Here are another couple for you. The first one is the same handsome fellow as above. The shot with the mouth full of fish was taken much later in the evening in very dim light. I was struggling achieving focus, and I’m not thrilled with the technical result, but I still like the photo.
