Ahhhhhhhhh Congrats so so cute! You know on the thumbnail pic I didn't think I would like this. It looked like to much water too little puffin. But it is just great on the large version!! Very nice shot! #2988

Cheryl, thank you very much for the comments, AND for taking the time to look at the large version. For me, it is the texture of the water that makes this shot. You are absolutely right, it does not show up well in the thumbnail.

Best Regards,
