Puffin   Fratercula arctica

Puffins are everyone's favourite and a very popular subject for photography. Nevertheless getting good images, especially flight shots is not always easy.

 

These images were all taken on Shetland - most of them at Sumburgh Head at the southern tip of Mainland. Here the sea cliffs are easily accessible at the RSPB Reserve and there are lots of vantage points for the photographer.
