I took up my position at the bow of the boat and watched in eager anticipation. We saw a lot of birds. But no puffins. Finally as we cruised up to a small island I saw one. He was standing on the edge of a clump of grass. I raised my camera and zoomed in......Trying to hold the big lens steady as the boat rocked up and down. I had one chance....I snapped the photo and hoped for the best.
I got it! The little puffin was flapping his wings and the backdrop of the grassy island and blue water was perfect. I was happy. It was fun to relive this moment when I painted from my photo too!
