Home for a Rest - Atlantic puffin
I 've already posted a few puffin flight shots from my visit to Ile aux Perroquets (Island of Puffins) but I figure you can never have too many puffin pictures right?
One of the many special things about Ile aux Perroquets is that you can photograph in good light. Many of the better known places in North America for puffin photography (e.g. Machias Seal Island) restrict the amount of time you can stay on the island so if you arrive in mid day you are stuck with harsh light. Being able to stay on the Ile aux Perroquets means you can photograph the birds in the softer light of late afternoon.
