  6. Great shot. Sort of doesn't look real - it is so sharp.

    What is it about puffins that make them so cute?

  9. I guess he must be landing as he seems to be looking down and his feet are pointing down, fantastic shot!

  11. Thanks for all the kind comments. Yes its a puffin and yes its landing - downhill and into a very stiff breeze

  12. Like everyone else, I think that it is an amazing shot. Thanks for providing the details--like how it is landing downhill. I'm sure that the wind probably helped "suspend" him while you grabbed this action shot. Nice job! Happy WW!
