"Puffin Marvelous"

By John Giddings
Taken against the sea sparkling in the background, this little bird was contemplating jumping to the next rock. They are so intresting just to watch and enjoy.

Looks Good Large.

Thanks for looking, John.

You can just sense that s/he's ready to do something startling. Like the sparkling out of focus bg too.
