A hungry Puffin photographed on Skellig Michael during my recent trip to the Kerry Peninsula in County Kerry, Ireland earlier this summer. I was busy photographing puffins on the island when this guy came flying in with a mouthful of fish. I don’t know how they can pick up so many fish at once but he was very proud of his catch. He flew off a couple of seconds after I captured this photo.
If you ever visit Skellig Michael, make sure you visit before the end of August as the birds fly off searching for their winter resting area and don’t return again until the following May.
This image was taken with my Sony A7R II using my Sony FE 70-200mm f/4 Lens set on 200mm. The camera was set on Aperture Priority mode with the aperture set at f/8, shutter speed at 1/2500th of a second and the ISO set at 1600. I hand-held the camera. This is a single image processed in Lightroom and finalized in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
