Theo Bosboom - Puffin portrait

Theo Bosboom - Puffin portrait

I do not consider myself as a wildlife or bird photographer. Somehow I do not seem to have enough patience for it and besides that I prefer taking pictures of landscapes and details. But every now and then I enjoy trying it, especially when I am an Iceland. There the birds are a bit easier to approach and of course you have the magnificent landscapes that you can use as a background. This puffin picture was taken on Heimay, a small island south of Iceland. It is an old one, from 2006. I am not sure if it still would be easy to take pictures like this, because I heard the puffin population over there has declined dramatically, due to a decline in sand eel numbers.

Location: Heimaey, Iceland
