A very fine capture of a Puffin, beautifully composed as it sits on the grassy slope. The sharpness, colours, POV and pose are all excellent.
Thanks for sharing this beauty,

You're lucky to have been able to see this lovely bird! Your capture is excellent showing details very sharply and the colours are beautiful. I like the way it is lying in the grass with the sky as a background. Well done!
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

These birds are really irresistible. This one just looks so sad, we would like to hug it. Interesting point of view and well composed picture. Iceland is a country I would like to know too.

Wow, lucky you to have gone to Iceland, I stopped once by plane for about an hour and I thought the air and the beautiful light wre fantastic! And what landscapes! This picture is superb, Karan, the pov is spot on and the background added to the grass in a diagonal line give the composition a rich and dynamic look. The colour puffin stands out nicely and they are such cuuuute creatures! Your notes were also very interesting, thank you!

Beautiful image of Puffin from Iceland!
great handsome pose of it in total sharpness, very nice colour and details
also thanks for the useful notes as well
have a nice day, my friend!
The Puffin is at the top of my list of birds I must see. I'm thinking about Iceland - how cold was it? Really - be honest. I freeze when it's below 70F. A wonderful Puffin posing beautifully for you on the hill. Amazing clarity, gorgeous colors, excellent details of this most adorable bird. A wonderful picture and composition.

I know it is normally odd to find what you are expecting, well, that's something that happens to me very often. But you made a wonderful capture of this 'chilled out' fellow at least and I am glad to see it.
Excellent shot. Thank you very much for sharing.

Fantastic capture.Beautiful colours with excellent definition.I liked very much.
So its not only the dear that fall asleep with you nearby. its also the birds. What is that makes them so relaxed? Although it didn't bring what you were looking for, it did allow you to get close and make a wonderful photo. The details, colors and especially the expression are very beautiful.
