Photo of the Day (01.09.09)

Puffins always amaze me. They appear so exotic and tropical, yet they reside in such frigid places as Iceland, Russia and Greenland. This little guy posed for Fiickr user The.Rohit in the tiny Icelandic village of Borgarfjörður Eystr (attempts to pronounce that name by those not skilled in Icelandic may result in tongue injuries). The photo shows off the diversity of Iceland, which, despite its name, is home to these gorgeous birds and some absolutely fantastic Spring and Summer weather.

What the photo does not convey is how wonderfully delicious puffins can be. They eat them in Iceland. I know this firsthand. Did I just ruin this picture for you?

Have a picture of a delicious animal (or anything else from your travels, for that matter)? Submit your images to Gadling's Flickr group right now and we might use it for a future Photo of the Day.
