revoici un petit macareux, oiseau symbole de l'Islande,
que l'on appelle également "perroquet des mers".
Un oiseau très attachant que ma présence semble intriguer mais pas effrayer pour autant, il s'est laissé approcher à environs 4mètres avant de s'envoler !

Le macareux moine peut sembler comique avec son gros bec. Mais pourtant ce dernier peut constituer une arme redoutable.

Les macareux utilisent leur bec pour aligner des petits poissons comme on le fait sur une brochette.
Ils s’en servent également pour creuser des terriers au sommet des falaises surplombant la mer.

Great shot Vincent. I think it is outstanding in all aspects and to top it off a species that I find fascinating. Well done, Rob.

This has much impact due to the wonderful eye-contact. Also the bright colours are very nice, it is clear and sharp. The bright spots of flowers to the right of the body are a bit distracting but not much so as the eye is drawn to the strong points of interest "marked-up" in red, its feet and of course its "stare", and one alternates between those along the body. The note is infomative as well as improving my French.
Merci bien pour cette tres belle image,

Bonjour Vincent,
Une autre belle image de ce macareux. Un point de vue différent pour son gros bec! Il semble vous regarder droit dans les yeux! Magnifiques couleurs et belle netteté. TFS

Hello Vincent

You have posted some suoer shots of the Puffin. Each one has been lovely. This one is again a very nice shot, with good exposure, nice depth of colour, excellent sharpness and detail. I like the 'glow' emitting from around the beak. Nice work. Thanks.
