Congrats on the top 15, Denise! In four trips, that was the first time I was able to get a clear shot of a puffin with fish. Thanks for pointing him out. I would have entered the same bird, but figured you probably had a better angle.

A good beakful! The light seems pretty harsh, but you have controlled the exposure well, with just a little blocking of the shadow area. A bit of a shame at least one of the feet isn't visible. I note there is no sun catch light in the puffin's eye; I have taken hundreds and hundreds of photos of puffins, and I have noticed the absence in mine, even where I am sure the angle of the sun would result in one - I wonder if it is something to do with the structure of the eye?

Great catch, love to see them with their food. Great use of DOF. Only minor thing is the face, it seems just too dark.

A heart-healthy meal! Guessing this might be Janine's since I know she was off shooting Puffins recently. But that's just a guess.
