Penguin or Parrot?

At the age of seven, I saw for the first time a photo of an Atlantic Puffin. I was completely fascinated by these birds. They seemed to be a mixture between a penguin and a parrot and I really wanted to see these birds in the wild.

Many years later, my dream came true in Iceland. I know this sounds crazy. But it was an incredible experience to photograph these birds and I really like to share my impressions with you.
