Skimming the Seas

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by sharon halliday

A puffin skimming along the surface of the sea as captured from the ferry enroute to Orkney. I had hoped to see lots of these enigmatic little characters during my Orkney trip, but this was the only one I spotted and he wasn't for stopping to pose for long.

Location: Orkney, Scotland
