    Last Saturday morning I visited my local seabird colony in the hope of seeing puffins in morning light as we've been having weeks of amazing weather here over in Scotland. I was sat where they are normally found when all of a sudden one landed on the cliff edge no more than 2 meters from me, talk about the right place at the right time! Spent the next hour just sitting there admiring the little beauty until it flew over to a larger edge to join a social gathering of puffins.

    Beautifully taken shots of this odd looking bird, 1 and 5 are my pic as I like how the shadow just comes over the Puffin but without actually making it darker.

    Agree with Dave, one and five are my favorites but they are all very nice.

    Really nice images; based on the title, I was expecting an image of me on my way to get my morning coffee.
