Puffins on skellig michael

I will post fully very soon on the Skellig Islands, a visit to both Islands is just Magical.

Each year the Islands are home to one of the worlds biggest colonies of Puffins and the above image is just one from many I got on a Visit back in July. The cliff top slopes on Skellig Michael are just breathtaking and you have to be very careful not to slip.

I really enjoyed getting these images as these wonderful bird are just magical to be around.

  6. I love the way the wings are folded on the Puffin. Overlapping each other, as if mama just said, “Look, but don’t touch.” Okay, Mama.
