At 2pm on July 4 we set sail with Seawatch Tours on The Days Catch. The departure point was Seal Cove on Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick. Our destination was Machias Seal Island, a small rock outcrop down near the U.S. border. The site is famous for its nesting Puffins. After an hour and a half journey the boat anchored just offshore and we were transferred to a small skiff and then on to the island. Weather had been rough recently so we were the first group to get ashore in a number of days. After signing in and receiving a briefing on the detailed rules that govern visitor behaviour, we were escorted to our blinds (grey wooden boxes) and for the next hour or so watched and photographed a wonderful array of Puffins and Razorbills (and a few Common Murres). Our blind faced directly into the sun, so photography conditions were less than ideal. Still, it was a great time, being so close to the birds. This is the image I was happiest with; there are a lot of pictures of Puffins in the world. Front on portraits like this one are a little bit uncommon.
