I'm back!

By Westerner  
Managed to get my first trip onto Skomer Island, at the second attempt - On the first attempt we were turned away because the northerly wind was making it impossible to land on Skomer.
Thanks to Tom & Andrew for a brilliant first day on Skomer.

Thanks to all for looking, hope you enjoy the image

Nice one Phil.
Only crit of this is you could try and pull some of the detail out of the black areas and also a lower view point of the Puffin would have been better than looking down on him. Try in future to get eye level to them and it will make a far better shot.
Sunburnt and hurting today though.Ouch.

I agree with Andrew's advice.
You did well to cope with the bright sunlight though.
Well done.

Thanks for looking, and comments, everyone.
Andrew.
This was one of the few puffins that didn't bolt straight into its burrow when it returned with the sand eels - I'm just pleased to have got a shot of a puffin with sand eels in its beak
