Atlantic Puffins 5










Atlantic Puffins 5

I have shared 50 photos of Atlantic puffins during this series and it appears as though many of you enjoyed them.  Like other series I've don recently, the photos were shared in the order they were taken.  Today's were taken near the end of my trip to the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve.  By then I was shooting more of birds taking flight or flying by.

The second photo is interesting because I was following a puffin flying directly overhead and shot a couple of images.  I didn't see the seagull flying overhead until after after I downloaded the images.  The positions of wings also adds interest to the image.

When I first saw the puffins and other birds in Witless Bay, I was struck by the seeming effotless flying of the kittiwakes and other gulls and the flight of the puffins. The puffins flight always reminded me of someone who was always in a hurry to get somewhere, whereas the gulls were meandering toward their destination. Gotta love the puffins!

When I visited the Witless Bay area, I was struck by the opposite flying styles of the gulls and the puffins. The gulls flew in an effortless manner, gliding and using the updrafts to meander around the bay. While the puffins flapped furiously much as a feathered commuter would who was late to work. It was comical. Love those puffins!
