Boo to Ramsay. And to the people who eat them! These are the most adorable birds in the world - my dream is to see one. If I lived in England I would go along with the boycott. I love this close-up of the Puffin. That face is priceless. Nice colors and details and I'm so jealous that you have seen so many of them.

I have seen my share of Puffin pixs...but this one stands out a bit because of the VERY diverse backdrop it/you chose. Back is almost competing for attention but in a good way. So that combination makes a good image and an enjoyable one to see!

Thanks for bring Ramsay's act to attention, very irresponsible behaviour on their part. How can any one think of harming such a cute bird, endangered or not. Shame on him and producers of the show. TFS

These are for sure may favorites birds so far, and how no come and view this picture.
I like the close approach and pose got, in which we can appreciate all the rich colours and patterns at the head.
Well done and thanks for share.
My best regards,

Another lovely capture of a Puffin on the cliff edge. I like the way it is looking up.
Fine details and beautiful colours.
A sad story - I bet there have been enough protests from England though. It is really shocking!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

The sad story of a well-known TV cook catching, killing and eating a threatened and striking species of bird is another account of how the vast majority of people don't care a dam about our natural world. What chance is there when even people in the public eye behave in this way?
Let's hope that we shall still see and enjoy these Atlantic Puffins long in the future so that people like you can show fine shots like this.
TFS for sharing this excellent sharp capture of a Puffin as well as the note.

Hi Pekka, lovely Puffin with splendid details and excellent sharpness, beautiful colors, very well done, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
Thank you for alerting me to the horrendous practices of Gordon Ramsay! I didn't see it but am horrified by what you have to say!
I think we should all complain to the BBC about what we consider to be a cruel destruction of an endagered species. This is not prime-time t.v. entertainment!
Just looking at your delightful shot, showing so well the character and details of this lovely seabird, I find it difficult to believe that anyone could have designs on them other than to watch and record their antics.
p.s. I have just launched a complaint to the BBC!

Hi Pekka, I would love to see these first up close. They look so quaint - like little clowns.
And I too read the news in the latest newspaper here in NZ about Gordon Ramsay. Hurrah for the puffin nipping him on the nose.
Lovely photo, super colours and I do like that expression he has in his eyes.

A gorgeous photo of a gorgeous bird! How awful that Gordon Ramsay condoned and promoted the killing (and eating) of such an awesome creature!!! I would dearly love the opportunity to photograph a Puffin and have always admired the work of other photographers who have such opportunities.
You have selected a very strong composition for your image and the colours are vibrant yet natural. I really like the pose too.
Well done and TFS.
Cheers from NZ
