16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Island of the Puffins

This photograph was taken inside the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve, depicting Atlantic Puffins nesting on Gull Island. During their nesting season, they have to be very aware of predatory birds, and I captured this Puffin squawking at a passing Black Backed Gull.
