    What can I add to what has already been said? :? Some of the best images that I have seen posted on the Cafe.
  12. Man! If I had taken that first shot, I'd be puffin' my chest out.
  13. WOW! That puffin shot is one heck of a shot!

    Unbelievable! I like them all.

    Thanks for posting them.
  14. I'm with the everyone else. That puffin picture is just amazing!
  15. The puffin is a total killer shot - have you posted it elsewhere in the last month? I have seen it before or a very similar shot.

    All the rest are top quality as well. Please, please keep'm coming!!
  16. Hi Phillip,

    The Puffin shot is superb!!!

    Where was it taken? Back in the film days (June 2000) we were able to get close (but nowhere a close a you) Puffin shots on Staffa Island in Scotland and Skellig Michael in Ireland. Might you have on one of these islands for this shot?

    Wow.. Heck I will even spell WOW backwards for you.. WOW. :) 

    That puffin pic might be the best photo of the year by anyone.
  19. That puffin is not a bird it is a pig. :lol: :lol: Absolutely lovely shot with great detail and color. Way to go. Of course the other images are very nice as well but are overwhelmed by the puffin.
  20. All your shots are awesome. I really like the Puffin.
