This is a puffin in the Látrabjarg Bird Cliffs in Iceland. And now, I will entertain you with some fun facts:

- Puffins only have their Technicolor bill part of the time, during mating season.
- They are nicknamed "sea parrots", or sometimes "clowns of the sea".
- Puffins are amazing swimmers, and can dive 60m underwater. So, like, that'd be almost 200 feet under the surface.
- The Látrabjarg Bird Cliffs are the westernmost part of Europe.
- Puffins can be found on menus of some restaurants around Reykjavik.
- I think this is the first time I ever seriously tried to photograph wild birds.
- I did not use any Photoshop Cartoon Function to make this fine bird look like Toucan Sam.
