Did you know that Atlantic puffins spend most of their lives at sea, but return to land to form breeding colonies during spring and summer?

There are more than one puffin species but the one that breeds in Iceland is the so called Atlantic Puffin.  What makes them special is the penguin like colour with a very colourful beak. 

The beak fades to gray during the winter but blooms into orange colour in the spring time.  Pretty amazing and probably to attract potential mates.
