Hey Michel,

What was the puffin doing that dandelion? If he took it for giving his spouse? or took it for being a casanova? :))

I know Nikkor 200 mm not enough for photographing the birds, but you did it well. There is some focusing problem.

Puffins are great birds, unfortunately they don't visit our country, so I see it only in your photographs...

See you soon...

Very nice photo. Good motive, First time I see that abird eat flovers, or only take it to his girl.

Hi Detay,
a nice shot with good composition and POV.
Maybe this bird is lover of flower.;-)
It's a bit soft and noisy but I think it's from the scanning.
Well done.

Hi Michel,

very lovely, well taken shot from that puffin in love!
Pose, composition, and colours are fine.

As for the softness, a little postwork might help.
I tried to fix that. Please have look into workshop.

Thank you, and best regards,
