The birds seem to pop out of the background, which I find charming.

I love puffins! We saw them at an RSPB reserve on the east coast of Yorkshire … God’s delightful whimsy!

Thank you for sharing, Sue. “Whimsy” seems a good word to use with this picture.

Thanks for posting this. It brings back wonderful memories of a day well spent. And I love the attribution of “whimsy” to God’s idea in creating puffins.

It’s such an apt attribution. God has a real sense of humour, I reckon!

I have experienced the face of God in the mountains, the ocean, animals and now in this delightful creation shared on line. Thank you for bringing a smile to my spirit.
