Not a puffin.

Yesterday I went to Skomer island to check out the puffins. I was the one that was puffed out though, as I'm not in as good a shape recently than I have been. Very hilly. Very wet. Very muddy.

Kit wise, used 7D with 100-400L, and after I noticed excessive contrast reduction from water ingress, switched to the 70-300L.
