19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Portrait of Puffin

Seeing puffins in their natural environment was on my Bucket list. There are plenty of places in Iceland where you can admire those wonderful birds. I was a bit worried because I don't have a car and many of those places are far and with difficult access. I live in the small town called Saudarkrokur and somebody told me that I could go to Drangey Island which is a nesting place for puffins. I went there and saw thousands of birds.
