Photographer's Note

This is the fourth time I had a chance to admire puffins in their natural environment, second time on Farne Islands. My parents in law were visiting and I asked myself a question what is the most impressive place I have experienced in the UK so far. The answer was simple: Farne Islands. You can read more about details how to get there etc in the note to my previous photo from this location (CLICK HERE).
Since I have seen the photos of puffins carrying several fishes in their beak I have dreamt about seeing it. This time I have seen it three times. First time the puffin was in a 2-3 meters distance, not shy at all, but I did not have my camera ready. Second time you can see in this picture. Third time was actually quite a sad experience as the puffin having beak full of fish tried to get back to its nest but it was attacked by a group of seagulls –they were playing with puffin like with a ball until they stolen all of its fish. It looked terrible but I could not help...

* I know the first and third puffins are out of focus, I was focused entirely on the middle one with the fish...
