Flocking heaven

Getting a photograph of a Puffin flock is tricky. They’re fast and fly with seemingly random twists and turns. Too few birds and it’s an empty scene which doesn’t represent the noise and confusion of them whirling around their burrows. Too many birds and they overlap and give an unartistic scene.

Here, then, are too many Puffins for an artistic photograph.

As a biologist, I love it.
