This was taken on Skomer Island in 2010 with my old Sony equipment.
I don't really want to look back but there are still a few photos that I haven't uploaded from that era.

I panned with the Puffin at 1/250th which may seem fast but we're talking Puffins here and they fly past like bullets.

I managed to capture a nice bit of wing motion yet still keep the body relatively sharp and I'm quite happy with the result.
