Photographer accidentally snaps the world’s happiest and relaxed bird, so cute!


You’d have trouble spotting any bird as relaxed as this adorable Fulmar bird, which has been dubbed the happiest bird in the world.

Scottish photographer Karen Munro accidentally snapped a photo of the cute sea bird while on a wildlife cruise around Stroma island, on Scotland’s coast.

Just take a look and see how happy he looks!

But Karen didn’t actually realize she took the perfect picture until a while later, and amused herself by looking through her camera roll.

She didn’t think she had taken any nice photos that day as the weather was bad.

“On arrival home I was going through my photos, most of which weren’t anything special as the light had been pretty poor that day.

“However I did have a laugh as soon as I saw this one, as the fulmar looks like he is smiling and having fun,” Karen told The Dodo.

He doesn’t have a care in the world, and we love it!

This is the look of pure bliss—this fulmar bird seems like he’s experiencing pure joy.

Karen shared and explained why she thinks the fulmar appears to be completely content with life.

“Fulmars will often glide alongside the boat, but this one had just lifted off the sea and was shaking itself to dry off whilst flying.

“It’s always great to capture something different. Over the last few days I have had many people commenting on the ‘Happy Bird Photo’ and how it made them smile,” she said.

Fans of her photography flocked to Instagram to share their love for the adorable bird, with one saying it’s “an interesting way of flying”.

“I think it was actually shaking to dry itself off,” Karen replied.

These other fulmars definitely look jealous that he’s having the time of his life!
