Cracking image Sylvia, fab detail considering the 2x TC, looks like that could be a useful combination,

To capture this fast moving character so crisply is no mean feat, Sylvia: very well done.

Great shot Sylvia. We see plenty of Puffins on the site of course but very few of the bird in flight. Nice combination too of the 300 and 2 xTC.GrinGrin

A fantastic inflight capture Sylvia, you've timed this one to perfection. It looks like this puffin is doing a swallow dive!
