A Circus of Puffins by ellida

A Circus of Puffins

Circus is one of many collective nouns applied to Puffins. I like it in this case as they nearly all seem to be doing something funny.

I did get more detailed and closer shots, but I like this for its humour quality.
Love their little matching boots & beaks! Lovely shot to see these birds here, little characters!

@happypat @huvesaker @joansmor @moviegal1 @ludwigsdiana @777margo @pusspup @merrelyn @happysnaps Thanks to all for great comments. I've never had a chance to photograph puffins before. I'd seen them at a distance and I was convinced that my chance had gone, as the puffins leave Shetland for Faroes and Iceland in early August.

P.S. I wish they wouldn't go to Iceland because they shoot them there and make pies from them!! ...and the numbers are decreasing.

A wonderful shot. You really should go to Skomer in May. Lots of puffins there and much closer than Shetland.
