Photographer's Note

A puffin is about to land on the cliffs of the isel of Runde, Norway. The isle hosts the largest puffin's colony in Norway, as well as many more tens of thousand sea birds of other species.
Best season to see them is may to july.
Organized boat trips and hiking excursions are boat highly recomennded.
Puffins can be seen closely from the top of the cliffs, as in this case


PS. Let me add a comment. I thought that it was good for this picture to have one bird out of focus, to ennhance the real subject, which is the flying bird.
Nevertheless some of you have shown some concern about this. This is a nice thing of TE: sometimes we have some strong opinion on our photos, and we realize that they are not at all shared by everybody !
