prepare for landing...... very funny shot you captured it very well

The detail is especially noticeable when viewed larger. Nice capture. Consider a crop to focus on the bird more?

Daniel Persson
Very nice Sean. Great action, nice pose and with a fish on top of all. Regards

Great shot! A correction though - Machias Seal Island is in New Brunswick, Canada; ownership of the island has been in dispute for decades, but there is a manned lighthouse operated by Canada for 150+ years. I've been there many times when I was with the Canadian Coast Guard (since retired). Only got a few puffins ashore from a blind once, using a film camera and a manual 300mm lens. Nothing anywhere as impressive as this one!
