Bit of a change from me!

Spent 2 weeks in Scotland on Honeymoon in June, a few days of which were spent on the isle of Mull (Which is stunning!). One day we took a boat trip to one of the islands to see Puffins. It was the first time I'd seen them on land and I was amazed how close they let us approach. I reckon if I tried I could have prodded one with my lens hood!

I did manage to find a Common Blue on both of the islands we visited which is about my lot for those this year so far!

Thank you so very much for this so very beautiful capture John. An image which I will never grow tired of seeing and admiring, the magical Puffin.

As good a puffin portrait as you are likely to see on here, the detail and colours in the plumage are first class and this one is posing so proudly for you

Adrian - for most of the day it was blue sky, but later on a bit of cloud came over and that was much better for photography. Black and white in bright sunshine isn't good!
