Final Approach

By Philip_P  
Just returned from a amazing 3 day stay on Skomer, such a wonderful place.

A small group of had spent many hours trying to capture puffin in flight, it was incredible difficult on Skomer at the Wick. For those who have never been there the Wick is small area with very high cliffs on either side, shaped like a U, the puffins come in at high speed from the right or fly low rising up the cliff face out of view. I was very luck this one had misjudged it's first attempt and had to fly to a circle, as I watched it come around and headed straight towards me. I must have deleted hundreds trying to capture this one image

Many thanks for the C/C's on my last photo
