Occasionally a very ordinary looking shot can lend itself to a humorous interpretation. Puffins (Fratercula arctica) taken on Staple Island, Farne Islands, Northumberland earlier this week. Just reminded me of a Giles-type cartoon Grin

Many thanks for your support of my last upload, with special thanks to Ron(Maiwand), Polli(pollisher), Trev(Trev_B) and Kev(Goodley) for their User Awards - really appreciated, guys Smile

You could not get a better title than that Sylvia Smile - a super image - conveys the scenario perfectly.
