For those of you that weren't aware, this is how a Puffin sleep it fluffs up it's feathers, turns it's head around and pokes it's beak under a wing.

I caught this one having a well deserved nap set against a lovely natural background on Skomer Island last Summer.

Another awesome detailed capture Geoff, the B/G is excellent, first one I have seen where the beak was not prominent.
