Puffins...


Here's a photo I took a few years agon when I went on a puffin trip off the coast of Maine. These puffins nest on Machias Seal Island and the only way to get out there is by boat.

Puffins have to be God laughing....what other excuse can there be for their strangeness?? Great photo! I'd love to see one some time for real, but this is the next best thing!

I'd like to take a ride on that boat! I've never seen a puffin. (Might you see the whales from the same boat?)

Saw lots of puffins off the coast from Seward on a whale watching cruise. That are strange enough to be cute!

Excellent capture! They don't even look real. I love puffins. I've only seen them in Iceland and had to climb a (small) mountain to do it. Apparently they are never easy to reach.
