Puffins always look very serious, so it was amusing to see this one pulling a face. His mate looks quite horrified.
Taken on a recent trip to Inner Farne, amazing how close you can get to the birds - this is only a slight crop on a 200mm lens.
Wonderful expressions on there faces, the one watching looks most disapproving. Well caught. Val

and amazing shot
Wow, my first EC - thanks Pete & the team, over the moon with that.
Absolutely Fabulous !! What a wonderfully captured image and a well deserved EC...Lovely shot
Very good capture. Well done on the EC
great capture.. i wanted to get a shpt of a puffin last weekend at bampton cliffs..but I only saw one and it was too far away...maybe next time.
Super shot if I get anywhere near as good as this when I go next month I will be well pleased, did you find that the 70-200 was long enough or did you wish you had taken a longer lens with you?
Congrats on the EC well done
The 70-200 was good for pair of puffins like this (thats on a D300 so equivalent to 300mm), but for individual birds it was a bit short. I took my 1.7x tc, but its no always the best combination sharpness wise, although I did use it a few times. On Inner Farne you can get really close to shags & gullimots and the 70-200 was ideal for those. There will be more birds about when you go - we were there early May, so not so many around.
Thanks Martin I might put the 80-400 in the bag along with the D300 + the 70-200 and leave the D700 at home
Thanks again for your reply
Wonderful capture and congratulations to being one of the Editor's choice photographs - thank you for sharing. Sue
My wife's favourite bird, beautifully caught. Well done on the editors choice - Paul
