Lovely lighting making a great picture. I'm surprised it did not place higher. That is the problem with open subject challenges. Hopefully you can enter it in a fountain challenge in the future.
Great picture. Deserved to place higher.
Brilliant picture. Maybe it didn't say "W" to the low vote people. I'd try it again in a moth challenge as it certainly deserves to win something.
I agree, great picture.
Great picture and fitted the theme well.
Great picture Percy, as many people obviously thought.
Thanks both. I'm pleased you liked it. I must admit I didn't think it would win but I'm trying to get an entry in every one of the A-Z challenges.
I've been away and come back to find this has won which is great. I'm glad you liked it as much as I did. I don't think I can make it to the rally stage on which this was taken, which is a shame.
This was favourite. It deserved higher placing. Congratulations on a great picture.
Thanks everyone. Puffins sure are good subjects for photography. It was seeing a similar photo that got me to got to the Farne Islands to give it a try myself.
Beautiful colours and composition.
Beautiful picture. Welcome to the challenges!
Beautiful picture. The colour really makes it.
This was my favourite, Ruth!
sue p: Great shot ~ love puffins!!
Thanks, Sue. It is hard not to love them. I don't know how the gulls can be so mean pinching fish off them!
Great picture. It reminds me summer has been going on so long it must be due to get cold soon.
Another beautiful image, George. Your entries usually stand out from the rest.
A great split second caught beautifully.
Thanks. It did seem to fit the challenge theme very well.
I did like this one. Not often the English middle class get a challenge made for them.
