Horned Puffin, Lake Clark National Park, Alaska.
We just got home and are still beaming from an awesome trip!
Although I loved spending time with the bears, puffin were actually at the top of my wish list. You see I often get requests for this beautiful bird, and live next to a very large population, but have never been able to photograph them up close until this trip. Now I can put an end to that frustration.
I have joked in the past that puffin really don’t exist – that they are just a cartoon character like Bugs Bunny. Having seen them up close and personal, I can attest that they are real, and they are spectacular!
Here are more Puffin photos.
