Hi John,

Great First upload, welcome to the Wonderful World of ePHOTOzine!!!

Don't take this the wrong way, I read an article in a well known photography magazine (dated 1997) stating 10 subjects that have been done to excess and Puffins with sand eels in their mouths was on the list (Don't shoot me I'm only the messenger!).

This maybe the case but just because a subject is popular it doesn't stop it being a great photograph. I would give my right arm to take this picture, in fact it is on my list of photographs to take before I die (I'm only 39 so a long way to go - hopefully!). OK it may lack originality (as do most of my pictures!) but that doesn't stop it from being a cracker. Damn I wish I'd taken it.......

11 out of 10 - More than Perfect!!

Andrew.

The shot that everyone wants of a Puffin. I believe that Puffins are starting to have a bad time of it due to a scarcity of sand eels. It may have been done before (what hasn't) but I always remember an old friend called Sidney Reynolds who used to say that "it may not be original but that's no reason why you shouldn't have one in your collection". Wonderful image. Andy
