This is a shot of a Atlantic Puffin who is bringing shrimp to his "chick" (baby puffin) in its hole, they usually eat sand eel but these past 5 years our Puffin colony was dropping because of climate change and the sand eel seem to have disappeared wich is their main diet, but this year it seem that the sand eel are back, and the colony seems to be getting better,

Location: Stórhöfði, Vestmannaeyjar, Iceland
