Atlantic Puffin

By Kim Walton    
As ePz gets seasonal diluge of both Bluebells and Puffins i `ve tried something slightly differant from the single bird with sand eels shot.
The Puffins are in on skomar island but mostly off shore.They havn`t laid yet so no chicks---and thus,no sandeels being brought back to the burrows. For that you need to wait till the end of May.
Hand held shot,besides the border,straight from camera.

A really well exposed shot, Kim. It could have been so easy to overexpose the bright spot/underexpose the shadows and yet you've balanced it so well. I love the look of these critters!
Great shot of this puffin. The detail is superb. JNC
