Puffins

In Elliston, you can walk to the end of a short trail to watch puffins on an island about 100 feet away. There were quite a few puffins standing on the cliffs and poking their heads out of their burrows. Next to the Bonavista Lighthouse there is another island with many puffins. I had never seen puffins at either location until my most recent trip.

I was lucky to photograph a couple of puffins flying in with capelin (tiny fish) in their mouths. Imagine how hard it is to focus on a bird flying by so quickly and shoot fast enough to capture a photo!
