Many thanks for all your comments on my last upload very much appreciated.
Thanks also to Badgerfred for the GEA and to Bravdo, Soulofharmony and ToByLERONE for taking the time to award one of their UA.
A visit to the Farne Islands earlier this week was a good trip but not a lot of Puffin activity.
The breading season is about two weeks late so majority of the puffins are still on the nest. However I did capture this on just as it was taking off.
Thanks for looking

Regards Richard

Using the focussing power of the 7D to good effect, Richard. Sharp and well separated from the bg, with some lovely wing movement.
