    A Puffin, sweetest looking bird in the world!
    (also sadest looking bird...)

    I just learned that Puffins can dive till 120 meters deep. Now, THAT's deep!
    Once the little ones leave the nest they will not return on land until they are 5-7 years of age. Until that time they will live on the ocean. When they return it is for the lenght of the breeding season only

      Adorable. i memorized a poem about puffins in third grade. I've forgotten the poem, but I remember the puffins.

      Great shot... The shiny objects in the bacground, even if they are out of focus, are a little distracting for me...
