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

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.
