Horned Puffin

St Paul Island, Alaska

D5, 300/2.8, 1.4TC, ISO 1600, f8, 1/3200

As the puffins approached the cliffs to land, they would sometimes divert and fly off to try again, especially when the winds were very strong. Lot's of opportunities to get some nice flight shots but hard to get one in full banking pose. I was please with this one.

Super cool flight in this frame. I was watched these birds in Kodiak Island few years ago and was not an easy task to take in flight pictures. Very well done, Alan.

Alan, Not sure if people appreciate just how hard this shot is to get in the frame, much less in perfect focus. This is a Great Shot....

Cool pose and BG, Alan! I also like the slight head tilt.
