I really like the second one - nice simple clean image that to me typifies the bird.

oooo.. I love Puffins!! Only hope to get an opportunity to shoot sometime... Great series, Rob!

Hope you don't mind, but I played with the last one a bit to try to bring down the harsh backlighting.. I just did some highlight and level adjustments to it and played with the eye to try and bring it up a lil

Was tough to retain detail in the black feathers and avoid haloing though
