A bucket list item! Something I've always wanted to see and experience. I went up to Maine a couple of years ago, but only saw two. From a boat. Far away.

This was beyond my dreams!! What an incredible adventure!! and huge HUGE thanks to SaraR for hosting me and going with me.

It may be a bucket list item -- but I can't cross it off my list. I would do it again in an instant!!

Here are some outtakes:

And if you want to see more, I started a blog. I got to day 3 out of 42 days. :)

oh -- and I thought the same thing!! His beak is stitched on to his face!

As to the title:
Lyrics
Fish heads, fish heads
Roly-poly fish heads
Fish heads, fish heads
Eat them up, yum
Fish heads, fish heads
Roly-poly fish heads
Fish heads, fish heads
Eat them up, yum
In the morning, laughing, happy fish heads
In the evening, floating in the soup
Ask a fish head anything you want to
They won't answer, they can't talk
I took a fish head out to see a movie
Didn't have to pay to get it in
They can't play baseball, they don't wear sweaters
They're not good dancers, they don't play drums
Roly-poly fish heads are never seen drinking cappuccino
In Italian restaurants with Oriental women
Yeah
Ask a fish head anything you want to
They won't answer, they can't talk
Ask a fish head anything you want to
They won't answer, they can't talk

Congratulations on the blue! The bleed into the eyes of the sandeels is something I haven't seen before and really rather interesting. I wonder if this puffin had a tighter grip than most? Often some are still alive at this point - you can see tails flicking a bit - but definitely not here!

I just realised the beak looks like itís stitched to the face. And those eyes, great detail. What a greedy guts he is ha ha.

Should do well.

Beautiful bird, with quite the mouthful of fishes. Kind of want a catchlight in the Puffin's eye, or maybe just some more detail there.
