Gazing out to sea, I captured this little Puffin on the Isle of Lunga, one of the Treshnish Isles off the west Coast of Scotland.

I like the simple uncluttered background to this shot and the feeling of expectancy as he plans his take off to look for sand eels to feed his young.

I hope you like it.

I like it very much Phil.

An excellent shot, well focused, very sharp, good uncluttered background, classic Puffin pose.

This shot has it all, except for a mouthful of sandeels, but there's plenty of images of those.

Excellent piece of work, regards Nick

you need to get the details in white and also black back, IMHO.
Otherwise, quite good.

A classic shot Phil and very well executed. I don't know how much detail there is at the top of his chest but a fine capture in my opinion.

Kind regards

Brett.
