Puffin [Fratercula arctica]


It didn't rain today, but it was overcast and moody. Again, I didn't go out. I'm thinking of not bothering to go out anymore, I have enough pictures in my achives, and the MAGIC bag, lol.


Puffins are any of three small species of alcids in the bird genus Fratercula with a brightly coloured beak during the breeding season. These are pelagic seabirds that feed primarily by diving in the water.

  12. Superb captures Bob! One of my favourites seabirds in the world. So much so, that I am planning a trip to the east coast of Canada (in 2015) in hopes of seeing and photographing them.

  13. They really are birds with appeal and character. Don't give up on going out photographing altogether though as it is relaxing just being there!

  25. El frailecillo es un ave que no he tenido la suerte de conocer aún en la naturaleza, por eso sus fotografías tienen para mi más valor al mostrármelo con todo detalle, Un abrazo,
