Tufted Puffin, Prince William Sound, Chugach National Forest, Alaska.

Here is a new one from aboard the Discovery last summer.  The the sun was just catching this Tufted Puffin as it flew back to it’s nest – the background is dark shade from the island.

    This is such an amazing photograph, Ron. The way the sun just touched the puffin in the shadow is quite dramatic. It reminds me of totem poles.
