A seriously fantastic capture.
The main birds are so sharp in focus and the one on the right looks as if its got loads of character, coupled with the incoming bird makes this shot for me.

Fantastic

This one plus yesterday's have got to be the best puffin shots ever. Here it's the quizzical look on the righthand bird's face while the other one touches down. And the belly-flop landing about to happen behind. Just wonderful.

So I'm imagining that the one on the right is the inspector; grading them for style and control as they land in succession Smile
