DUUUUCK!!! ....that's not right....PUFFFFIN!! by 

Taken with a Canon 50D, Canon 100 – 400 L series lens @ 235mm, F5.6 shutter speed 1/2000 second ISO400, edited in Photoshop

We have just spent a wonderful week on the amazing Scottish island of Mull. Whilst there we went on a boat trip to see the amazing island of Staffa which we had half an hour to walk around and then we went on to another island called Lunga where these beautiful and characterful puffins can be found.

Puffins are about a foot high and amazingly fast at flying, this shot took me quite some time to get, several curses passed my lips as I took a lot of shots that only had the sky on…pretty though a blue sky is it was not the shot I wanted…lol!!

If you are ever on Mull I would suggest you do this amazing boat trip

    LOL @ tittle, wonderful capture mate. They really are a fabulous bird – sounds like they were more than tricky to take photo’s of. Really glad you got this one – it’s a cracker.

  • Cheers mate, I must have taken 200+ shots of puffins….I will publish some more in a few days/weeks!!
