My Puffin Photography Experience

There are not many places in Iceland where you can get close to puffins. I had planned ahead and had taken a long telephoto lens on my trip to use at Dyrhólaey on the southern coast of Iceland. As the rested between fishing flights, I was able to get wonderful close-up photos of puffins.

My puffin photography efforts got another boost in Alaska while I was photographing bears. It was strange tht these colorful little guys were in the same area as the big grizzly bears.

Facts About Puffins

The puffin is any of three species of diving birds that belong to the auk family, Alcidae (order Charadriiformes). They are distinguished by their large, brightly colored, triangular beaks. In spite of their tout bodies and short wings, puffins can fly as fast as 55 mph but to do so, they have to flap their wings 300 to 400 times per minute to stay aloft. Puffins often live more than two decades which is a long life for a bird.

The Strange And Colorful Puffins

Puffins are strange but very colorful, little birds. Their large, orange beak that appears to be stitched on certainly gets your attention. They don't look like they would fly that well, but they do. They dive into the water to catch a meal and return to their perch.

Photos of Puffins can be taken in northern Atlantic Ocean areas such as in Iceland and Alaska, the two places I happened to photograph them. The Atlantic Puffin seems to be the most common. There is also the Tufted Puffin and the Horned Puffin.
