stunning piece. I especially love the puffin's quizical head tilt and the effect of seeing the grass heads repeated in the bokeh light effect!

I love the DOF and the grass silhouettes in the bokeh, that is very cool! How did you achieve that effect?

The DOF is simply due a fast aperature.
I had a very low shootingposition while taking this foto, thus having some grass just in front of the lens. The focal lenght and aperature keeps a cleared it from the actual photo, however are the bright dots reflected sun from the ocean 50 feet below, and the grass silhouette i simply the shadow of the grass from these reflections.
Hope I made any sense, glad you like it :)
