We spent an afternoon photographing Little Auks at a colony on Spitsbergen. They nest high on the cliffs to avoid Polar Bears and foxes, so I was perched on a couple of boulders to get this shot. I am usually scared of heights, but even though I was balancing precariously I forgot to be scared because these little birds are just so awesome!
