Puffins in Iceland

It has long been a dream of mine to see puffins in the flesh, so our Iceland trip included a puffin-watching jaunt in Reykjavik harbour. The puffins had given up on breeding on the islands in the harbour & were headed back out to sea, so we only got to see them on the water. They were pretty tough to photograph, being skittish and also quite small. Their take-off from water is less than graceful as it involves a lot of frantic flapping and their flying silhouette is rather chunky. But they were adorable to watch.
