Last Saturday I went to Skomer Island for the first time. I think every other wildlife photographer was there as well. It was a perfect day but a little early for the fledging season. Still I was quite pleased to catch this Puffin landing. Hope you like it.

Lovely action shot of the bird landing, Paul. A good backcloth too, but maybe would look more balanced with a crop to put it on the lower left third.

Great action capture, Paul and better than anything I managed in-flight that day. Agree with Dave's crop suggestion.
