Huffing Puffins

Photograph by Danny Green, National Geographic

Dueling puffins flare their wings and part their beaks in a muddy tussle on Skomer Island, Wales. Most puffin fights start over competing claims to a burrow. A bite to the neck usually settles the issue.

Lovely birds. It is a pity that in some restaurants in Iceland serve them cooked.

"  I can take you on any time", "oh,yeah,you just try"  Getting this great shot of birds fighting, is an unusual one, and impressive, with lots of color, and action, to keep it interesting. A really great shot.So thanks, Danny Green.
