Its A Hard Life.

By proberts
Another one from Skomer on Tuesday.
Caught this one having a little shut eye inbetween flying out to sea to catch the Sand Eels and returning to feed the chick.Once back,they have to get past the Black Backed Gulls who lay in wait for them to return so they can steal the food,sometimes killing the Puffins.
Its a hard life? It is if your a Puffin.

No wonder he's tired out, the speed they fly.
You've captured this one just right.
