Images taken July 9-10, 2013.

For those of you who have preceded me to the island you know the excitement. For those of you who have yet to visit the island I know your anticipation.

4-thousand pictures taken. I"m posting only 10 for now.

I hope you enjoy the series.

I'm still wondering if I have even taken 4k images in my lifetime let alone on one Island

Sweet success UT, these are delightful and this visit is still on my bucket list! I was expecting only Puffins but you have nice variety here to appreciate. Razorbill look great and who doesn't like a good Puffin coming at you with a mouth full

Lucky you, only 4k?

Nice set UT, glad you had a good trip. For those of us who've been there and to others who haven't, its usually referred to as MSI or Machias Seal Island.

Wonderful set, Ted; I feel your enthusiasm as I had a similar experience a few months ago in Scotland. (As did Paul Waldron). My favorite is that last Puffin shot...they are so charismatic, and you captured the charisma perfectly!

Greg

P.S. Where are the hummingbirds?

Your IF Puffin shots are da bomb Ted. The rest of the puffin shots are close behind, and 2 stands out too. The others are still nice, but they aren't Puffins... ~ Ron

Thank you Karl. As you know, if you have 10 shots of the same pose, 9 will be deleted.
