A stunning composition, the stereotypic image of the Puffin with a bill full of sprats. The uncluttered background allowing one to enjoy this magnificent seabird at its very best. "A point to be learned there for all aspiring Ornithological Photographers" Both the colour and detail are crisp and sharp, whilst the pose is suited to square format. The chosen aperture of f/8 has allowed the main protagonist to remain perfectly sharp whilst at the same time softly blowing out the background in order to remove ant unwanted clutter or distractions.
