I’m not usually one for wildlife photography; as a rule I prefer my macro or 50mm and I like subjects which don’t move: like flowers and trees! However, last year I was given a telezoom lens and I have really enjoyed trying it out. This was a trip to the Shetland Islands in July and these adorable little puffins on Sumburgh Head were very obliging. Such cute subjects, and their faces are so gorgeously comical and expressive.

What a trip that must have been! I’m with you on preferring subjects that don’t move, but these are really fun. I’ve never had the pleasure of seeing puffins in person – it must have been wonderful. I like seeing them next to the grass and flowers – so many sweet shots! – and it makes me realize they’re smaller than I thought. Thanks! 🙂
they are much smaller than you think, but so cute!
Loved looking at these Puffins, made especially interesting with your variations on depth of field.
thank you John!
