Another Atlantic Puffin (Fratercula arctica) giving a very good impersonation of the Angel of the North. I just love the antics these little comedians get up to Smile A full frame (uncropped) capture, taken 13.8m from subject.

I was totally blown away by your response to my last Puffin upload. Very sincere thanks to Pete for the EC and to Ade(Ade_Osman), Ed(Glostopcat), Richard(MossyOak), Brian (bricurtis) and David (chalkhillblue) for their User Awards - all very much appreciated Smile

You caught it just at the right moment with wings fully stretched, Sylvia, and as always from you in very fine detail.

A charming capture, perfectly timed, love the title.... was reading an article about the Puffins and he referred to them as the clowns of the bird world. Seems like he is right.

Brilliant angle and timing for such a wonderfully characterful image as well as involving your instinct for strong shapes and artistic compositions. Focus spot on as always and the background very undistracting. Superb work again.
