    I am offically totally jealous!

    Those puffin shots are fantastic and you are working that 300mm really well.

    I spent pretty much a full day on Canna a few years ago and puffins were difficult, getting them in flight was nigh on impossible with them being tiny and fast. Very well done.

    Not gonna lie it was tough, they are small and surprisingly fast flyers, but after a bit of practice and recognizing their flight paths it became relatively straight forward to track them. Felt like I was the only one there trying to get shots in flight >.<
