Puffin, Faroe Islands by Paul Boomsma

Picture Story

While exploring the Faroe Islands on a photography trip, I visited an island called Mykines - a very small island home to just 12 people and thousands of puffins during the summer months. While hiking along the coast, I spotted a small burrow and knew that male puffins dig these burrows to nest in. I set up my camera and laid down at a safe distance and waited patiently. After a little while, a puffin briefly popped out of the burrow, took a quick look around and flew out to sea. I managed to capture this image of the puffin in that short moment that he took a look at me before flying away.
