Taken overlooking the Pentland firth, I had to hang over the cliff to capture this shot with the bird about fifteen feet below me. I did notice while waiting for a flight shot that the puffins are not very ergonomically bright, if they missed their 'run up' to their nest ledge/ hole then it required a 200 metre flight back out to sea and then try again. I watched one bird try at least six times to land using this method and many of his compatriots did the same
