Puffin with a Twig

By dark_lord  
A puffin (Fratercula arctica) in Crab Bay on Skokholm island, Pembrokeshire.
I was sitting down on the edge of the slope when one puffin with a small twig came towards me, paused briefly then proceeded to walk between my feet and and underneath my legs before going off towards its burrow. Too close for my lens to focus!
That was the highlight of the week for me.

Thank you for all your comments and votes on Get Back To Work, and thanks to Jeff (cats_123) for his UA.

walt asked about cleaning windows, and the answer is yes, so I'll upload one of those sometime

He maybe thought it was a sand eel? Great close-up of my favourite bird.

A lovely profile portrait in the lead image, Keith, and he really looks as if he's posing for you in the version.
