Crash Landing

 

This is one of my favourite Puffin shots, taken on the spectacular Isle of May in Fife.  The island is covered in Puffins and a must visit location if you’re interested in seabirds.

Although agile once in the air, Puffins always seem to have trouble taking off and landing.  They do both with a distinct lack of grace and often land in a bit of a flap.
