the daredevil by NordicBlackbird

from the Nature series -

Atlantic Puffins on breeding ground.

They may look clumsy on land when walking or even when taking off from the cliff edge, they nonetheless remain agile & robust flyers…

    Oh Yes! This is wonderful! This is nature photgraphy at its best for me. Puffins are excellent to see and experience. It’s a pity that their numbers are starting to dwindle from our shores.
    Again, an excellent image! Well done!

  • thank you kindly, Kevin :)))
    Oh, i ken how you feel about nature photography :)). Puffins and other wonders of our planet are so exquisite… part of home. Watching them in their habitat remains a formidable experience. Watching their num,bers dwindling breaks hearts. This is when we must be respectful of our planet :). xo
