In Praise of Puffins

(Click image to make larger)

Like many people I love Puffins. And a maxim that I care for very much by Eli Siegel from his book of maxims, Damned Welcome, had me appreciate Puffins even more as I took this photo on Machias Seal Island off the Maine Coast.

The strange really has a smile on its face; you should welcome it with open arms.

Stay tuned for more Puffin sightings to come.

    I always loved all kinds of exotic birds, which I had several, but I can see why Eli Siegel mentioned Puffins. It is definitely one of the most beautiful birds and you caught it in its high glory. Beautiful shot. Should win a prize.
