PUFFLET & PARENT.

By PhilG_DPAGB  
I FEEL VERY PRIVILEGED TO HAVE WITNESSED LET ALONE PHOTOGRAPHED THE EMERGENCE OF THIS PUFFLET ON SKOMER ISLAND. THE MAJORITY COME OUT AFTER DARK AND JUMP OFF THE CLIFFS - HOPING TO LAND ON WATER - THEY SPEND THE NEXT 9 MONTHS OF THEIR LIFE WITHOUT TOUCHING LAND UNTIL COMING BACK TO SKOMER NEXT SPRING. NATURES WONDERFUL, 'AINT IT'!!

Beautiful capture, super wing detail, like the nonchalent attitude of the parent.
