I thought that today I'd feature some images from a trip I took out to Machias Seal Island, ME to visit the Atlantic Puffin (Fratercula arctica) and Razorbilll (Alca torda) breeding colonies. Machias Seal Island is an amazing place and I highly recommend booking a trip out to the island if you have the chance. They have long-standing blinds set up near the breeding colonies which allow you sit feet away from puffins and razorbills above their burrows without disturbing them. I can't describe to you what a magical experience it is to photograph and observe these birds at close range. I had the biggest smile plastered to my face for the entire boat ride back to the mainland. Enjoy!
