[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
every year from April trough June a large colony of atlantic puffins breed and nest on the island of Lunga, part of the Treshnish islands in the inner hebrides off the coast of Scottland. These birds otherwise spend their entire life on open water in the ocean.

Hello Daniel,
Great shot of a bird not often seen here on TN. You managed the exposure quite well considering the harsh lighting you had to deal with. Puffins have such unique looking body features, unlike any other bird and their markings are very attractive. I love the POV as its sits out in the open with a beautiful blue BG. Well done!

Hello Daniel,
Beautiful bird and eye catching POV.Good details and colour, although white parts look bit over exposed.
Thanks for sharing,

Hi Daniel,
This species is also living on the coastal cliffs of Ireland, and although I never yet managed to photograph them, I see it's quite a difficult job due to the black and white plumage, which is quite easy to either over- or underexpose. Your image became a tad overexposed on some white parts, however, the composition's good and the blue of the background is also spectacular. Good sharpness as well. I hope to see you more often here on TN, with such good photos as this one.
Kind regards from Ireland, László
