The Aspiring Conductor !

By teocali
A wild Atlantic Puffin (Fratercula arctica) - virtually a full frame capture with a little cropped from the RHS and top to balance the composition. Taken on Staple Island, Farnes last week. This little chap looked for all the world as though he was conducting an orchestra!

What a wonderful pose Sylvia, they are such comical characters with their own unique charm. This one is doing a brilliant impersonation of a swan, yesterdays swallow impression was good but this one is better!

What a stunning capture, i was reading an article about them on the plane today and they referred to them as displaying human like behaviour and your image proves that.
