Thanks for your comments, Fred: yes a crop in from the top would be another versions of this but wanted a square image for a triptych.

They do tend to look quite comical, like mini Penguins.

Delightful shot of one of our most endearing birds. You have pulled off the difficult bit, getting really good feather detail in the white feathers.

I always find their sad expression a little comical....just me.
Perfect detail in its white plumage, on exposure and pin sharp, of course.

Colour and clarity is very good, Richard, lovely separation from that background. A bit of a shame about the white splodge behind the legs but that was out of your control and only a minor negative in an otherwise excellent image.

Great image, nice pose, with good detail in the whites. I was up there last Saturday, first time I have landed on the islands, I agree a very impressive amount of bird activity but the sun was too bright for good photography, plan to go back though.

A super study of this lone Puffin Richard with a background which does not distract. Super Focus.
