You caught this flying puffin very well. I think this bird is one of the cutest of all. Nice, satured colors and good sharpness. Impressive capture!

Very good in flight capture of this Puffin.
Lovely pose of the bird with the wings in front and legs down, ready to land.
Sharpness and exposure are excellent and therefore feather details and colors are beautiful.
Pity the top of the right wing is cropped of a little, but that does'nt effect the beauty of the image to much.
The Puffin is a bit to much centered in the frame though and it would have ben nicer, as it comes to composition, if you did crop a small part (one inch or a little more) from the right side.
Nevertheless a very nice shot and a joy to look at.
Thanks for sharing.

I've tried photographing these birds in flight and I know how difficult it is, so I think you've done very well here.
The puffin is nice and sharp and the out of focus sea makes a great background. Good light too, and it's well exposed.
It would have been even better if the puffin was less central in the frame - leaving more space in front of the bird than behind. I'd also have preferred it if you hadn't clipped the wingtip with the edge of the frame.
Even so, I like this a lot, and apart from the framing issues it's very well taken.
Good work Joseph.

Nice in flight Puffin.
Like the blue BG as well.
Wing touching the frame is a minor nit...

The diffused lighting, BG and the action make this a class picture! The only nit might be its little in the center but don't bother its a very good picture.

Wonderful image Joseph!
I can see the air ruffling the feathers of the Puffin!
Excellent colors and depth of field.

A beautiful inflight moment of this wonderful bird. I still hope to capture it myself someday. Great work on the details and exposure. I like the way you issolated the bird from the blue sea. A small pity about the clipped wing.

Great timing and good freezing of motion. Beautiful colours and a sharp image.
