I get a feeling that if any of the participants in my Iceland adventure in July see this picture, they might be slightly annoyed. This was shot on the first day I got to Iceland, before any of them got there and it was pretty much the only day with a lot of sunshine. On top of that, I managed to get much closer to this puffin then on any of the other occasions we saw these cute birds. Sorry! 🙂
I almost didn’t notice it as I was busy photographing the landscape around Vik in the South of Iceland, but as I was gathering my gear, I saw it with the corner of my eye and quickly got my second camera out (a D7000 which I always keep it with the small, but sharp 70-300mm lens). I managed to get a few shots before the bird flew away.
