“Anybody ho-home?”

"Hey, Basil, who's that dude?"

“Hey, Basil, who’s that dude?”

"Oh, man, really need to look the part..."

“Oh, man, really need to look the part…”

"et voilà"

“et voilà”

"Heeeehaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!"

“Heeeehaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!”

Better, so much better than any reality show… They  come to delight us every summer, they preen and argue with their world and they add so much colour and meaning to our life. Every picture tells its story. Today I reconvened to the top of a great headland with a friend, and we pointed our lenses to any flying wonder that came to land before our eyes. We were not disappointed. Here, my afternoon in a nutshell, pictorial, with a minimum of words… Really, what comes to mind when adding …”Will you look at that, such a fabulous landing!” It really was a fabulous day, and I felt very privileged to watch and stand among those notoriously gorgeous “parrots of the sea” 🙂

"Did you see that... did you see that clown taking off in such manner? Man, he was a real haggis!"

“Did you see that… did you see that clown taking off in such manner? Man, he was a real haggis!”

"kaaaaawwwwwww" (1 word for 'awesome' in puffin tongue...)

“kaaaaawwwwwww” (1 word for ‘awesome’ in puffin tongue…)

"Just give me five minutes, will you???"“Just give me five minutes, will you???”
