I realise that Puffin shots are quite common, particularly this time of year. However, I managed to capture this on my first visit to Skomer on Friday. After taking many posing shots I really wanted to achieve an in-flight shot, and was very pleased with this result. The Puffins had just begun late last week bringing sandeels to their young. A delightful day!
