Puffins are difficult birds to photograph in flight. They are small and fast, a tough combination. After several attempts, I made a few images I was happy with, and this is the best of those. The puffin is coming in to land, with the waves crashing on the rocks in the background.
Puffins are irresistible little birds, full of charisma. From late spring to mid summer, Skellig Michael is home to thousands of them. On this particular day it was raining steadily, and I captured this one as it was shaking the rain from its feathers.
