One of the things I was most looking forward to about visiting Iceland was seeing puffins. Our first spotting was on the ferry to the Westman Islands. But they were flying and far away. (Despite their distance I still tried to capture a few pictures of puffins. None of those photos made this cut.)
When we arrived in the Westman Islands, we drove a short way up a hill to a hike through a field of sheep, where we discovered hundreds of puffins. And in Vik (at Dyrholaey) we saw even more puffins. They were even cuter in real life than I thought they would be.
Here are my favorite pictures of puffins.
