Coming Atcha!

In a flurry of feathers this Atlantic Puffin is looking committed to a landing. With legs set far back in their body, puffins are incredibly efficient in propelling themselves through water, but less than graceful when it comes to landing. They often take a tumble as they approach their rocky burrows on the Seal Island National Wildlife Refuge, and have to take care not to drop their precious catch.
