Spent time with these puffins on Stroma Island off the north coast of Sutherland a few years back. The island is uninhabited so the puffins are quite friendly and allow you to get close enough to use a short telephoto lens. The cliffs are a bit scary though.

Nothing quite like spending time with salmon while they are running. This is Shin Falls, and it's amazing to see how salmon overcome the immense pressure of the thundering waters of the River Shin in spate to keep moving upstream.

I lay on the shingle with a telephoto for ages to get this shot. The pup kept looking around and I had to time the shot with the breaking waves. Was quite happy when I got home and saw this on the computer :smile:
