Where is Skomer Island? I love puffins - this is a perfect shot - well done! Did you take lots?

Outstanding shot, would have been perfection without the distraction in the foreground but wonderful nontheless.

Thanks all. Just to add Skomer Island is in South Wales off the Pembrokeshire coast near Milford Haven.

It looks like it could do with a little more sharpening John but nonetheless, a nice 'typical' pose of a Puffin.

With regard to the OOF foreground. The current 'trend' in NH photography is for some OOF foreground although I think in this case it looks as if there isn't enough to make it look deliberate (if you see what I mean)

Great capture. The limited DOF really makes the bird stand out. Well done.

A lovely image John. Looks like you had a really good day. Our week can only get better. Our dog, Sam died on Tuesday morning and it's very hard to accept. Speak to you soon Smile0
