Super images, Herb.
I've never seen a good closeup image of krill before this. WOW!
They're bigger than I thought. As big as some shrimp.
Since taking off from the water is such a chore for puffins, it helps to be able to carry more that one little goodie at a time. I'm guessing there are little hooks on the insides of the beaks that hold on tightly to those slippery little devils.
Charlie


That's right Charlie. The puffins have barbed hooks on the roof of their upper mandible, and they use their tongue to apply pressure to keep the fish on the hooks while they open up their beaks for another fish/krill. Thanks for stopping by.

Beautiful!
How did you get there? Ferry, boat?
Hmm, that piece of land is still a disputed territory.


There are several charter companies which allow access to the island and blind shooting for a few hours per day.

Hey Herb,
You captured these guys just the way they should be. Your shots give the impression that I am there seeing them myself. Which IMO make these photos perfect. Thanks for sharing your talent and experience with us.
Gary


Thanks Gary for the ultra kind comments.

I dont know a lot about Puffins but it sure looks like there not afraid of people.Excellent shots Herb


Actually, they are afraid of people, hence the shots from an enclosed blind.

Amazing shots Herb ! Love them both equally - the water on the bird and it's catch certainly helps the detail since the Puffin's waxy coat doesn't help in that regard.


Thanks for the comments
