Atlantic Puffin Portrait

This is a shot of an Atlantic Puffin returning home after an evening of fishing. It had started to get late one evening on Iceland's southern coast. I knew Puffins nested in the cliff side but I couldn't figure out where they were. Just as we were about to head back Puffin after Puffin started zooming in and landing at their nests.
