Puffin Flight II

By TerryMcK  
A Puffin captured in mid-flight as it leapt from a precarious ledge at Bempton Cliffs in East Yorks. Not a very graceful bird in flight but I was fascinated by the birds ability to manouvre itself in the fierce winds screaming in from off the North Sea.

I appreciate your response to my previous Puffin upload.
