Atlantic Puffin with Sand Eels
Puffin with Sand eels 2008
Canon 20D + 300mm lens. Hand held. 1/1500sec @ F 3.5
To anyone who has visited the Farne Islands off the Northumbrian coast of England, the breeding season for the resident seabirds is a spectacular affair.
Easy Puffin photography is available as they stroll about and rest on nearby rocks but flying birds can be a completely different story.
*The Sand Eels of 2008 were good but those of June 2009 are large and plentyful, some fish
measuring almost a foot in length.
As a result, many young are very well advanced.
At least one good result nature story*
