Puffin Photo Opportunity

Photo: Puffin Photo Opportunity

A puffin landing next to a visitor at Sumburgh Head during some fine sunshine last weekend.

Just to explain about the photo… It’s made up of six individual exposures, all captured within a split second of one another (at ten frames per second). The final frame in the sequence, with the puffin on the dyke, included the photographer at the left-hand side. I made a similar image a few years ago, ‘Papagaaiduiker’, with a faster moving puffin (and a slower camera).
