We’d taken lots of clas­sic puf­fin shots all day and I was re­ally pleased with the ones I’d got, but I was still hunt­ing for a shot that re­ally showed off the char­ac­ter of these charis­matic lit­tle birds – they’re so much fun to watch! This one wan­dered into my frame in the early af­ter­noon and posed for a while be­fore sud­denly turn­ing head-on and puff­ing out his chest for us. I got down re­ally low to frame him with some blurred sea cam­pion in the fore­ground, which leads you into the shot. Dif­fused light through some cloud that had gath­ered helped with my ex­po­sure, and there’s a lot of de­tail in the plumage on his wings.
