Even though our trip is over ~ I still want to share more pictures of Mull and Iona with you all because it really is such a beautiful part of our we country! . I just love the colours in this one! @staffatrips This is the wee boat that took us to Staffa to visit #fingalscave and of course my favourite #puffins. It’s also where Ireland’s Giants Causeway begins... . . .
With 8 to 10 million puffins inhabiting the island, Iceland is home for more than of 60% the world’s entire Atlantic puffin population. Atlantic puffins have incredible skills. They can dive to depths of about 60 meters and fly at a speed of 88 km/h (24m/sec) by flapping their wings 400 times per minute! Thanks to their funny appearance, puffins have been nicknamed ‘sea parrots’ and ‘clowns of the sea’! 🦜🐧🌊🏔 #puffins#bird ...
Day 41 Little #puffins can fly up to 55 mph, their beaks get colorful like a #suntan in the season of summer, and some relationships between the same two puffins have been recorded at up to 20 years! Puffins are in decline because of two reasons, and spills. I just want to remind everyone that there are better ways to our planet. Share your earth with those you can.
My expectations for Puffins in Iceland is first picture. My reality was second picture 😂. Shout out to Laki Tours for their awesome tour and picture 🙌🏼. Also I fully support the koko mjolk movement and want chocolate milk boxes all over Texas. As for salt coated liqourice “I dun want it” - Jon Snow😖. #kókómjólk#iceland @lakitours
Saltee Island in Ireland is home of the Puffins as well as at least 5 other kinds of birds. We saw so many baby birds and eggs. Its was such an adventure getting there because 1st we got on a small boat and then a raft. We were dropped off with a small group of people and got to explore on our own for 4hrs. #latergram#salteeisland
"Parrot of the sea" Puffins will spend months at Sea. They will dive over 100ft into the ocean to catch fish, which they can hold 5-20 at a time. They can also fly up to 55mph! Puffins can live 20 years or more, during their lifetime they have one partner, laying only one egg a year. . . . #explorealaska#optoutside
I am ready to take off to Scotland!!! Stay tuned for all updates from an awesome place. Leading two Nature Photography tours in Scotland followed by Ireland then off to visit my Family in Hungary. See you all in August back here at #lakehodges. . . #puffin

Puffin! Finally got to meet some of these little guys in Newfoundland at the puffin viewing site in Elliston. Even though I've been to Iceland twice, neither time was the correct season for Puffins. Although I did see them on restaurant menus when I was there 😐.
Huffin and Puffin discussing the latest hot topic in puffin world: The rise of toxic masculinity on Puffin rock which they blame on Puffin Patriarchy making red meat readily accessible to the toxic male puffins. #antifeminist#feminist
Day 1 at what I call 'Puffin land'. Quite literally is! The farne islands have almost a hundred thousand Puffins and pufflings during the breeding season. Beautiful but stinky :P . . . . . . . . . . . #farne#island @farneislandpuffins
What an amazing place Skomer Island is, so lucky to be able to return there yesterday. It feels like a place lost in time, a few centuries behind the mainland, with virtually un-disturbed flora and fauna. We are lucky to have the @wildlifetrustsww keeping it that way. - Perhaps not the best photo I took that day, but just had to post the classic Sandeel in mouth stance, caught this little fella before he bopped into his burrow. This guy has a mere 8 eels in his mouth, nothing when compared to a puffin found in Norway with 80 at ...
I felt so grateful to be able to see these beautiful puffins once again. Little know fact puffins shed the colourful outer parts of their bills after the breeding season, leaving a smaller and duller beak. . . .. ... .... ..... .... ... .. . #novascotia#capebretonadventure
These little buggers were extremely difficult to photograph! They just zip by so fast you barely get a glimpse! Was lucky to get the ones I did but will need a better zoom lens for next time! The have little burrows (Ive included a picture of the bumpy looking grass) and they just zip in and out of those burrows like it's no body's business 😅 #puffins#birds
