The force of cuteness, any close up encounter with these animals is just an astonishing experience. And then to imagine that our islandic friends deep-fry there birds to eat!

Hi Jeroen. This is a bird i have yet to see and take a picture of . Next year i hope. I love the sad look on the face. and the unusual red bill. Taken with fine detail and natural colours . well done TFs.

The Jereon

Excellent potrait and BG. If anything the pic is a tad tightly cropped on the left.


Congratulations for this close up. and for the lens too. Perfect.

I imagine that is an extraordiinary experience to see this birds. I am still dreaming to see them. Very good portret, a little sad expresion in the eye. Congratuletions!

Hallo Jeroen
Great photography showing this bird's perfectly shaped and formed plumage in all its glory. A big splendor and poser indeed. I like the tilted head, which makes the bird somewhat mischievously looking. It is real eye-catcher. An image well presented and worth a big smiley and a sheer delight to look at. Focus, clarity and sharpness are great. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Hallo Jeroen,
Fantastische foto van deze Papegaaiduiker. Goede scherpte en bijzonder mooie natuurlijke en heldere kleuren tegen een fantastisch vage achtergrond. Erg leuk oog-contact. Foto genomen vanuit een erg goed laag standpunt. Een beauty!
Heerlijk vakantie!!!

Jeroen, this is a nice shot. The grass at the bottom is very distracting. You said that my goose eye looked like a hole in his head. For your information that is catch light in his eye. Have a great day. Bill

Hi Jeroen,

The close-up view is showing with precision the details and colors of the of the Puffin. The subject is well frame. The quality of the light is enhancing the colors. have a nice day.
