Puffin Relief!

By teocali
Every now and then a nesting Atlantic Puffin (Fratercula arctica) would come out of its burrow to stretch its wings and perform the necessary "housekeeping" duties! A near full frame capture taken on Staple Island, Farnes, a couple of weeks ago. A good reason for wearing a broad-brimmed hat when visiting this location!

Grateful thanks for your support of my last upload, with a special thank you to Mara(maratsuikka) and Lillian(Lillian) for their User Awards - all very much appreciated Smile

Never seen an image like this, what outstanding timing, you are certainly taking a different slant to capture this most charismatic little bird.
