Photographer's Note

Taken last weekend on Skellig Michael, off the coast of Kerry. The Puffins there are not shy at all and you can get quite close to them. I guess I was only about 3 metres from this little fella (or lady).
The light wasn't great during the 2 hours we had on the island, but this bird was conveniently sitting in a patch of flowers which looked quite nice against the dark background. the dull light probably also helped to control the highlights and shadows that are a big problem wiith black and white birds.
I tried very hard to get a shot of a Puffin landing, but I they are too fast. I guess I have to go back some time ;o)
