feeling puffined up
I recently spent some time on Skomer island in Wales where there are puffin colonies. I put the longest lens I had on my camera and tracked the puffins that were flying around until they came within range, and then, like any good human, I shot them. As you can see, this one was carrying food for its young. The Olympus E1 I was using is not really known for its focussing speed, but it worked fine for me. The lens was a 200 + 1.4 multiplyer (566mm in 35 mm equivalency) and that seemed like a good compromise between reach and hand-holdability. Let me know what you think.
