Great capture of a 'Bridled' Common Guillemot taken from a fine POV with great sharpness in this frame-filling composition. You must have been pretty close to get such a fine portrait of the species.
Thanks and best wishes,

This Guillemot is quite a handsome bird. The face is so sharp with that wonderful eye that does look like a half spectacle. The feathers are beautiful and the feet are amazing. I always wonder where you were when you take these shots on the cliffs.

I love the look of this bird. The detail you captured at such a slow speed if fantastic. I assume you were using a tripod.
I like the way you caught it looking up so as to emphasize the white line around and down from the eye.
Thanks for showing me this interesting bird we don't see in my part of the world.

Hi Pekka. This is about as close as you could get . It lets us see the fine detail of the feathers with natural colours. With the white ring and line from the eye. All with interesting notes . well done TFS.

I remember seeig one of your Guillimot in-flight shots and almost mistaking it to be a Penguin!!!!
This is a fine close up shot with good details standing out.I like the expression caught as also the close details of its head especially the eye.Shooting the bird in its original habitat makes it even more interesting to look at.
Very well done.
TFS & Cheers

Detayları kusursuz sergilenmiş ilginç bir kuş sunumu olmuş. Tebrikler.
Excellent shot of this Guillemot, Pekka!
Very fine detail and clarity.
Nice, soft light.
P.s. Next month, me and my Mum are coming down to Kent for a weekend. On one of the days, we'll hopefully be going to Elmley Marsh and I was wondering if you wanted to meet up there again? I'll get back to you with a date as I'm not at home at the moment and can't check the calendar :-)
