Thank you, Garry.

I had a quick peek at your web site.

Nice.

I like the mix, not just a gallery.


Ralph.

Hello,

I am a PhD student studying the winter behaviour of Atlantic puffins at the University of Oxford, UK. I really like your photo and I was wondering if you would give me permission to use it as my title background picture to produce a poster on my research for a small conference in London? The poster would only be printed once and will not be used for any commercial activity (its purpose is only to let my colleagues know about my work, and your photo would be a nice addition to make all the graphs and text on the poster look more interesting!).

Could you please let me know whether you would mind or not? Obviously I would add your name on the photo.

Many thanks,

Annette

Very nice Ralph. How have you been? First post in a while. I hope all is well. We're surviving a rather cool summer here in Germany. Another overcast day today.

Hurray, breeding plumage time! Great shot, love the narrow DOF and how the bright orange beak/feet stand out against the blue/green/grey.
