Taken at the weekend at Skomer Island. My first time to Skomer and my second time photographing Puffins. Puffins are fun to watch as well as photograph. A fantastic weekend in the company of Maddie and Keithh, good to meet up with Coltranekoh and Phil_Morgan (Puffin Masters).

Looks Good Large.

Thanks for looking, John.

I was going to say "well caught" but it was the puffin that did the catching! It looks well chuffed and you have captured the moment brilliantly!

Excellent shot John and a wonderful pose but surely with that catch the title should have been "but the one that got away was this big"
Sadly my planned trip to Skomer (where my brother is working) ended up being cancelled due to wind and the news that the ferry wasn't likely to be running; so I'm going to have to wait until next year to see the puffins personally Sad
