After 2 days of bad weather, and not being able to reach the island due to bad tides, rough seas... I managed to get landing tickets, and amazingly great weather.. :)

Gorgeous shots.
I still think all Puffins look like Jonny Morris!

Great shots! I just came across Skomer Island on the net a few days ago. It seems like a fantastic place.

Dang, I love these birds. How do they manage to capture 6 or even more minnows / small fish, without loosing the first ones.

Great shots, thanks for sharing. K

And I went all the way to Unst in the Shetland Islands to get some Puffins. These things are all over the UK's offshore islands.

Puffins are not easy to photograph. They are contrasty and the backgrounds can be distracting. You did well with your efforts!
