Puffin in Flight

Having spent several weeks on St Kilda surrounded by puffins, finding subject matter was not difficult.  Sketching flying puffins was another matter.  Their wings are adapted more for ‘flying under water’ than through the air and so to increase their efficiency they have to beat their wings very, very quickly.  This does not make for good sketches.  Coming in to land provides a good opportunity for sketching because wing movement is slower and their feet become a prominent feature.  Puffins’ flying skills are very good but their landing techniques can leave a lot to be desired.  Often they will land in a tumbling ball of legs and feathers before coming to an undignified stop!
