On a serious note, they are remarkable birds. Spending the majority of the year at sea. Only returning to land to breed. The young Pufflings will spend the first few years of life out at sea, where their wings are perfectly adapted to swimming under water. In fact when you see them fly you can understand why they spend most of their time on the water.
These were taken on Staple Island and from the boat as we went around the island.
Superbe série ;-)ReplyDelete

Amazing shots! I'd love someday to make a trip to see them.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous captures of these wonderful birds!ReplyDelete
Classic shots there Adam. What little posers those Puffins are.ReplyDelete
I was in the Seattle Aquarium where they had a puffin enclosure. I stood there for a long time as one of the puffins kept diving under the water and popping up through the surface and fluttering about. Your photos are fantastic. I particularly like the ones with the fish in the puffins beak.ReplyDelete
Such a lovely character.ReplyDelete
Whoa! Great series! I like the catch it has in its beak.ReplyDelete
They are cute.ReplyDelete
I knew they could swim, but I didn't realize they spent so much time on the water.
It's easy to be overcome by their cuteness! :-) But they really are amazing birds! You got some wonderful shots! So cool you got to see so many. Love the photos with their beaks full of fish. Great post!ReplyDelete

Fabulous Adam....just plain fabulous. I like your reference to the 'clown eyes'. Yes, indeed. Now that you mention it.ReplyDelete
I've never met a puffin so I'm really jealous that you got to take so many amazing shots.ReplyDelete
