A comical photo of two Puffins, next month they start arriving back after spending the last 8 months at sea. They in most parts pair for life and when they come back ashore they find their partners and go through this courtship routine or bonding. Kissing bills, reaffirming their bonds with each other, showing off etc. I was behind them here and I shot in portrait otherwise it would have been too tight in landscape mode. The bum in the air is funny too not the perfect angle to catch a Puffin in but it’s a very enduring moment I captured here. Hope it makes you laugh as much as it did me at the same time I was very nervous just in case I was caught in the poo firing line as Puffin poo makes a mess on your equipment trust me I know :0)
