More than 50 puffins on this puffinreunion. It's hard to count them! Believe me, this is no trucage. I didn't photoshop this picture.
On Ingolshofdi, a small island on the south coast of Iceland, I saw thousands of puffins together. It was my ultimate birdexperience!!

It must have been an amazing experience I think, to see so many all at once. They look great all crowded together. I think more DOF would make it even better but your exposure, colours, BG, DOF and composition are all fantastic. Lovely :)

Very good photo of this puffinreunion !
I really like it.
Bravo !

Great capture. Like the angle of the heads against the BG. Would have liked to have seen them all sharp with a bit less BG noise (there's a small white spot too). But the colours and expressions are excellent.

Great group picture, Zeno. The puffins are very cute and colorful. Very interesting composition of so many of them. Shot is very crisp and well-exposed. TFS. : )

Wish I was there !

Une très belle prise nature, j'aime beaucoup voir cette réunion d'oiseau, un festival de couleurs.

Féliciations !!

Excellent picture of this cute bird ! I just came back today from Iceland, I saw some of them, but never so many at once !
