Was it the Sigma 50-500mm? I have that lens and have had some good shots of common stuff like Robins. I love this really sharp, I tried last week at Bempton Cliffs but just couldn't get close enough.

Cracking shot but a little disappointed I didn't make it. Sounds like it was a great day out.

Great image with a cracking lens, worth an EC I think.

Fabulous work Andy, I've resisted the temptation to put a Puffin shot up today....
Sue say's you should re-name your self as "Swan-Vesta" because you now look like a match and because of that "swan" shot!.....ROFLOL

The harsh summer light can often be a nightmare for photographing the puffins on Skomer, but looks like you've handled it superbly here with great detail in both the light and dark plumage.
The background is gorgeous and the bird's pose really attractive.
Congratulations on an excellent shot.
